NX Quick Start Guide
Here are the instructions for accessing beamline workstations:
- Login to the NoMachine Portal here: https://delos.aps.anl.gov (either your ANL LDAP username/password or the DM credentials "d<badge>/esaf password")
- Select the system you want to connect to, and click the Connect button.
- Select an existing virtual desktop, and click the Connect button.
To create a new virtual desktop, select "Create a new virtual desktop", and see the instructions here
At this point, you should be at a Gnome desktop where you can open applications.
You can adjust display settings in the Display settings panel, which you can access by clicking the "peel back" in the upper right corner. NX desktops run better with more network bandwidth. The default settings should be fine for most connections. In some cases however, you may have to make adjustments. For example, on a 15Mbps connection, you may have to lower the Quality level slider to get the desktop to run smooth.
