Lean terminal services with NX


Article from Issue 85/2007

NX provides fast terminal services, even over slow connections.

High-performing GUI-based terminal services were just a dream for Linux users. Now NoMachine’s NX and the independent FreeNX project provide the combination of tools you need for fast graphic terminal sessions in Linux. You can even connect through a browser window. NoMachine started developing a high-performance terminal server solution in 2000. The announcement that NoMachine was releasing its own libraries under the GPL in March 2003 caused a stir, particularly because NoMachine’s NX software supports major protocols like RDP (Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Protocol), VNC (Virtual Network Computing), and X11. NoMachine also lets users control any KDE, Gnome, or Windows session with just a slow modem connection, which is even more surprising in light of the fact that NX supports RSA or DSA encryption.
