Ok - I do wish X2Go handled that a little more elegantly. It may be on
a to do list somewhere. In the meantime, the work around is to manually
edit /usr/bin/x2gostartagent (and remember to edit it after every
upgrade - it would be a little better if this was a configurable option)
and change a couple of parameters:
#X2GO_PORT=49 #First port for X2GO=50
#SSH_PORT=30000 #First ssh port 30001
In other words, set the different X2Go servers to start on different SSH
ports. I do not recall if different X2Go ports are necessary. Does
that help? Good luck - John
