NoMachine NX

Usually I use VNC to access my machine. But VNC is slow and it even doesn't transfer characters like {} and such. Maybe it's an issue with Ubuntu's VINO VNC server. I don't know. The fact is that VNC is slow.
Today I discovered that NoMachine provides free NXServer. It only supports 2 simultaneous connections, but it is enough since I'm the only one that accesses my computer remotely. The installation is easy (at least on Ubuntu 6.10):

sudo apt-get install openssh-server
sudo apt-get install libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2
sudo dpkg -i nxclient_2.1.0-17_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i nxnode_2.1.0-15_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i nxserver_2.1.0-18_i386.deb

I got nxclient_2.1.0-17_i386.deb, nxnode_2.1.0-15_i386.deb and nxserver_2.1.0-18_i386.deb
from NoMachine.
And that's it. Then you run nclient from a remote machine. :)))
