    Hello there,

    I’m a student at Durham University where they have provide a Linux cluster which normally I remotely access through the use of Putty and then VNC viewer. Recently however the IT service posted this new information suggesting an easier way to remotely access the cluster was by using your software NoMachine FreeVersion. Essentially it just enables users to log in and use a remote desktop Linux PC.
    They have very limited instructions at this site: https://www.dur.ac.uk/cis/linux/vega-next/
    You’ll notice none of their download links now work, is this due to them linking previously to the Version 3?
    Anyway, you can see they say to specify ‘Unix’ and ‘GNOME’ for the connection, but in the new version 4 I can see no way of doing this?
    Either way, I am unable to connect using the current version 4, and I suspect it’s due to the IT service not configuring to use the new version 4, however is it actually something I am doing wrong?

    I have looked in your ‘Knowledge Base’ section of the website, but the configuration documents also seem to show a version different than that currently available.

    I am connecting from a Windows 7 PC to what I said earlier, a Linux (Unix, GNOME) service.
    I’d be very grateful for any help you can offer,
    Sam

     You’ll notice none of their download links now work, is this due to them linking previously to the Version 3?

    It is more because there is now a new website and the layout of the download section is changed. You should probably notify their webmasters so that they can update the links.

     

     they say to specify ‘Unix’ and ‘GNOME’ for the connection, but in the new version 4 I can see no way of doing this

    With client 4, it’s no more necessary to pre-configure the session: when you connect to server 3.5.0 you will have all the available session types listed.

     

    About connecting to the server, did you read this article? It explains how to connect using the client 4 to a 3 server.
