    Hi

    I recently installed the Enterprise Terminal server on a test machine (Dell R710/RHELv5) and the client on a PC. My group mainly uses a legacy X11 application and my manager was suitably impressed with the speed and is ready to sign the order. To make my life easy, I used SSH.

    For our production environment, the servers are located on a private IP address and one server with a public IP can reach the private addresses (Wikipedia calls it an SSH jump host)

    I read the section that recommended NX protocol over SSH. My question is that if I install the NX server on the private address servers, do I setup an SSH tunnel through the public facing server and use NX protocol?

    Thanks

    Yes, it’s possible to tunnel NX protocol over a SSH, as explained in https://www.nomachine.com/AR10K00728.

    However there are no benefits to do that, compared to use SSH directly.

    Hi

    Is there a better way to reach the internal servers thru the public server then?

    You can configure your router to forward some TCP ports to your internal machines.
    Each unique external TCP port should map to port 4000 of the separate internal machine.
    In a similar way you can handle UDP ports to improve multimedia performance.
