FreeNX (NXserver) Install and Admin HowTo


Recommended Posts

This is a simple howto to install and admin this great Terminal Server for Linux.

It is from far better than VNC and proprietary RDP protocols.


NXservers are based on XDMCP protocol, tunneled via ssh protocol, but with wise compression and some magics that turn it usable at low speedy connections too, like modens.

It mounts clients shares and printers, it also map sound server too. Basically it works like M$ WTS, but NXserver is more responsive. It run on Linux servers and have clients for almost all OSs.


To run software for your clients, to admin servers (like me), or only to make your mothers old PC a thin client to you robust game machine (like me too :), NX it.


To make the HowTo easy to edit, if necessary, I'll keep it in only one place.
