NX provides remote desktop virtualisation over an encrypted connection. This allows you to connect to our Linux server with a virtual desktop and work from anywhere. If you are on a managed Windows desktop, you will find the installer for NX in the Application Catalog.
We are currently in limbo over whether we will continue to support NX, as the newer versions don't work with OpenNX (what we use on our Linux server). If you are using a personal machine, we suggest using our alternative service X2Go instead. We will make an announcement to the school soon when we have decided which service (NX or X2go) we will use for the future.
