How To Login To A Workstation Using nomachine

to use nomachine, you first have to download the client, see: https://www.nomachine.com/

The client is free to use but the (free) server only provides one client connection at the time.

In order to use it, you will also have to activate the McGill VPN .

Also worth mentioning is the notion of proxy … for x2go, it refers to a ssh proxy, namely login.bic.mni.mcgill.ca

…while for nomachine it requires a web proxy, which we don’t provide, so don’t use that option!

Use the NX mode on port 4000 to connect to your workstations on bic.mni.mcgill.ca
