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



Well, one reason I want to do this with NX client is to keep the consentience of office programs.  Also, NX client compress X over ssh which improves performance and security over dialup and broadband. The students use what ever comes with their pc from computer manufacturer, so I have to fight with Corel, Microsoft Works, and other word processing programs.  Plus, there is no confusion where the student saves his work floppy, pen drive, or home drive.  Then I do not have to deal with bad floppies and pen drives.  Another thing using the NX client might help a student if his computer is infected with a lot of virus or spyware.  The NX Client might run good enough to allow him to work on school projects were the student might not be able to run a word processor or spreadsheet program in the computers current infected state.  My biggest concern is someone compromising a student account using the terminal server to explorer the network for more targets to hack.  That is one thing I would have to minimize before letting students connect from home.

Actually the acess to files from outside the school should be made through a website or a webdav. Providing a freenx account wouldn't do any good to your bandwidth.

Best,

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
