-The CS Dept. has a six server NX/​Nomachine Linux cluster available for use by all CS account holders. This cluster provides graphical linux desktop sessions from a client running on Windows ​or Mac or Linux. This cluster consists of a front end server (''​%%nxfront.cs.virginia.edu%%''​),​ and five back end servers (''​%%labsrv01-05%%''​) providing Linux desktop sessions. From the NX server, you can access all CS Dept servers.+The CS Dept. has a six server NX/​Nomachine Linux cluster available for use by all CS account holders.

-=== 1st time CS network user? === 
-If you are a first time CS network user (you'​ve never logged in before), it is best to reset your temporary password (as provided to you in an email from the Dept when your account was setup) on the //portal// cluster, THEN login via NX. To do so, open a terminal window and type ''​%%ssh <​userid>​@portal.cs.virginia.edu%%''​ (for example, ''​%%ssh abc1de@portal.cs.virginia.edu%%''​). You will be asked for your current (temporary) password, then asked to enter your new password, which you will verify. Then start up the NX client and login with your new password.
