NX Remote Desktop

The CS Dept. has a six server NX/Nomachine cluster available for use by all CS account holders. This cluster consists of a front end server (nxfront.cs.virginia.edu), and five back end servers (labsrv01-05) providing Linux desktop sessions.

Users can download an NX client for onto their laptop or workstation from https://www.nomachine.com/download, run the client, and specify “nx.cs.virginia.edu” as the server to which to connect.

Here are the instructions for using NX in the CS Dept.: nx-setup_v3a.pdf

When you log into an NX session, it's just like you are logging in to any of our Linux servers. You will find your home directory just like anywhere else.

The session servers run CentOS 7x. If you are looking for software once logged in, take a look at our software modules page. You can find a listing of available modules for CentOS here.
