 +The CS Dept. has a six server NX/​Nomachine Linux 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.

 +===== 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 CS Department portal, THEN login via NX. To do so, open a terminal window and type ''​%%ssh <​userid>​@portal.cs.virginia.edu%%''​ (for example, ''​%%ssh pgh5a@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.
 +===== Setup =====
 +
 +Users can download an NX client onto their laptop or workstation from [[https://​www.nomachine.com/​download|https://​www.nomachine.com/​download]]. Then run the NX 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 |}}
 +
 +===== Usage =====
 +
 +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.  Most common linux software is already installed and available on these servers. Take a look at our [[linux_environment_modules|software modules page]].
