NoMachine NX is a proprietary remote desktop program which offers more features compared to VNC.

In this tutorial we will covering the process of installing and configuring NoMachine NX on Ubuntu.

Note: NoMachine NX is free for both commercial and personal use, however if you need more features and support you must purchase an Enterprise license.


Setting up NoMachine NX:

Download and install the NoMachine NX package on your server. You may check for newer releases on the [official site].

If you want audio support, you should install PulseAudio before installing NoMachine NX:

sudo apt-get install pulseaudio

If you are using x86_64:

sudo dpkg -i nomachine_5.1.9_6_amd64.deb

If you are using x86:

sudo dpkg -i nomachine_5.1.9_7_i386.deb

Note: If you are using a firewall, you must allow incoming connections to ports 4000 (TCP) and ports from 4011 to 4999 (UDP):


sudo ufw allow 4000/tcp
sudo ufw allow 4011:4999/udp

In iptables:

sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 4000 -j ACCEPT
sudo iptables -A INPUT -p udp --match multiport --dports 4011:4999 -j ACCEPT

For default ports in NoMachine NX see [here].


Now you can connect to your server using your NoMachine NX client.
