Remote Linux Desktops with NoMachine NX

[ Thanks to BobB for this link. ]

"The ability to remotely log on to a Linux machine is usually fairly straight-forward: You install SSH and openssh-server and then tunnel X with the ssh command. But what if you want a full-blown desktop? You could install a VNC or RDP server, or you could go all out with a complete remote desktop management solution like NoMachine NX. With this solution you can enjoy multi-session remote desktop environments with multi-media support, printing support, and file sharing.

"NoMachine NX is available for Linux in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. There is a free version (which will be the version we discuss here) that has pre-compiled binaries for Red Hat flavors and Debian flavors as well as a source download. Check out the download page for more information."
