On the server I assume?
500 being the uid of the user that starts the xpra server?

How? On the client or server?
Please post the command lines used.

I can attach with or without having this directory present.

The "command not found" can be safely ignored, I see it all the time on
centos and is not causing any problems, just a minor visual annoyance.

As for the root cause of your connectivity problems - if you still have
them, I have just tried connecting to and from centos 7.x and 6.x, with
ssh on a non-standard port, using a brand new test user account, and it
didn't fail once. (well, once before I opened up the firewall on that port)
I can only assume that something about your setup is different.
