Nomachine or NX technology is a computer program that handles remote X Window System connections, and attempts to greatly improve on the NoMachineperformance of the native X display protocol to the point that it can be usable over a slow link such as a dial-up modem. It wraps remote connections in SSH sessions for encryption.

It is developed by Gian Filippo Pinzari at the Italian software company NoMachine. The NX scheme was derived from that of DXPC – the Differential X Protocol Compressor project.[

NX software is currently available for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and Solaris. NoMachine has clients available for Windows and Mac OS X, and Google makes a freely available Open Source GPL2 version of the server called NeatX

Lets give you example  how t o  connect  to Fedora 16 :

First  install the  required packges

 [pirat9@Fedora16-unixmen Downloads]$ ll
total 18992
-rw-rw-r--. 1 pirat9 pirat9 4665824 Nov 16 15:27 nxclient-3.5.0-7.x86_64.rpm
-rw-rw-r--. 1 pirat9 pirat9 6798811 Nov 16 15:27 nxnode-3.5.0-7.x86_64.rpm
-rw-rw-r--. 1 pirat9 pirat9 7975938 Nov 16 15:28 nxserver-3.5.0-9.x86_64.rpm
[pirat9@Fedora16-unixmen Downloads]$

 Install  the  packages

 [pirat9@Fedora16-unixmen Downloads]$ sudo   rpm -ivh nx*
Output
[sudo] password for pirat9:

 CUPS Printing Backend

 The NX Client set-up procedure detected that your “IPP CUPS” printing
 backend doesn’t allow printing from the NX session. In order to have
 printing support in your NX system, you need to set proper permissions
 on the IPP backend. Please execute:

   chmod 755 /usr/lib/cups/backend/ipp

Server keys

The initial login between client and server happens through a DSA key
pair, i.e. a couple of specially generated cryptographic keys, called
the private key and the public key, which allow you to establish a
secure connection, by means of SSL encryption, between NX client and
NX server.

 

- Now  you are   ready ,  try to  connect from NX client  somewhere with   NX windows  Client  or NX Linux  Client

 in my example  i m behind an ubuntu based  os :

Download  and install  the  package  from  http://64.34.161.181/download/3.5.0/Linux/nxclient_3.5.0-7_amd64.deb

 

and then start  the  client:

 

ENJOYYYYYYY
