Connecting to Unix/Linux with NX

NX lets you work on a remote computer using its graphical user interface (GUI). It provides you with a "remote desktop" within a window on your own computer.

NX is essentially a graphical version of the older text-only (command line) programs Telnet, RSH, and SSH, and it provides the same security as the latter. It's similar to programs such as Windows Remote Desktop and Apple Remote Desktop, except that it's cross-platform.
