Re: [K12OSN] What is the limitations of free nx compared to nx server.



Actually, that's one of the touted benefits of the NX protocol, that it can strip and compress X traffic down to low-bandwidth links like dial-up and still give decent performance. Thus, if your server has a T1 upload link, you ought to be able to get ~20+ freenx sessions going, assuming the server can handle the load. Caveat: I haven't tried this. It seems several people have been thinking along the lines of providing access to the server to students at home. Since the server isn't really in use after hours, it would seem to be feasible. Anyone trying it yet?

Thanks for the info Theo! 200 sessions is more than enough for my
needs.

Looking in the config file the default limit is 200, but this must also
be hardware dependant as to whether the machine can cope with this many.
I am considering the idea of allowing remote access in using NX as well.

I have installed freenx on K12LTSP 5.0 and would like to know is there
any limitations on how many concurrent users with the fedora 5 version
of freenx? I know nomachine's version of freenx it only allows for two
concurrent session with their freenx server. Does anybody allow students
to remote into the ltsp server from their home using nomachine client?

Thanks
