NoMachine NX, remote login


This article was written in the 2010, there may have been some developments in the subject matter.
If in doubt please leave a comment in the bottom of the article.

Many people Il logo della NoMachinereaders of the blog will know almost certainly VNC, the remote access software to display (the operare) the remote computer. Today, however, we are talking about NoMachine NX, software developed by NoMachine which deals with the "login" remote. Unlike VNC will not have the opportunity to see the operations performed by the user to remotely, but the possibility of either login as if we were a follower of the machine to which we link.

NX is a software developed by the NoMachine, successful Italian company. From the site NoMachine you can download the free version for GNU / Linux software, the download is differentiated by hardware architecture (i386 on x86_64) and GNU / Linux (.deb for Debian , .rpm per Red Hat, .tar.gz to compile). In fact the software are three in all: Server, Email client "Node" (an open source dependency required at startup of the first two). The software regarding client and server is owner.

For those who administer should require more than a certain number of computers it is possible to download NX Server Manager, a convenient graphical interface for managing "on the fly" Multiple Servers.

There is also a project derived from the core open source software NX named "FreeNX". I quote the words of the official website:

Tecologia NX is a new and exciting for the remote display. E 'can provide the user with a response close to the local speed despite the high latency or low bandwidth availability. The core libraries for NX are distributed by NoMachine under the GPL license. FreeNX is a GPLed NX server and client components.

Here is a screenshot of NoMachine NX installed on a distro GNU / Linux with KDE, connected to a Windows PC.


I keep this blog as a hobby by 2009. I am passionate about graphic, technology, software Open Source. Among my articles will be easy to find music, and some personal thoughts, but I prefer the direct line of the blog mainly to technology. For more information contact me.

  1. Oh well, I thought to turn off the flame but apparently I have fed.. ­čśÉ

  2. with elevated language, pinco not understand a shit and make him laugh!!!!

  3. Elevated language apart, I do not think you've grasped the operation.
    Nomachine NX (as explained in the article and in the title) you do not need to “check” the screen of a user from a remote.
    With NX Nomachine we can directly logging on the remote computer with your username and password, as if we were physically working on the server. In this way, a computer is not very performant (as a netbook) can harness the power of an advanced computer, when connected to a more powerful computer. Even in companies is possible to configure a computer with Nomachine NX server with a high potential, which will go to the normal client computer conntettersi (can also be very old pcs) that will exploit the full potential of the PC server (of course if the server can give 10 and connected users are 5, users will have 2).

    The software for desktop sharing are other, and have other purposes. Before commenting would be useful to read the article maybe.

  4. …new tools to shit the fuck to employees? deluded…
