NX Free Edition

NX Free Edition

NoMachine NX is a Terminal Server and Remote Access solution based on a comprising set of enterprise class open source technologies. It allows users to run remote X11 sessions across slow or low-bandwith connections, often at almost native speeds.

The NX project provides a suite of libraries and X11 proxying agents implementing efficient compression and optimized transport of X11, SMB, IPP, HTTP, and protocols like audio and video over the Internet.

NX uses the SSH protocol to send its data, making use of public key cryptography for authentication purposes. When an NX client connects to a server, the client program initially logs into the server using the 'nx' username, authenticated with the SSH public key method.

It is available in a number of editions: NX Server Free Edition, NX Enterprise Desktop Server, NX Small Business Server, NX Exterprise Server, and NX Advanced Server. Only the first of these server editions is available under the GPL license, the remaining servers are released under a proprietary license.
