X2Go

X2Go is an open-source remote desktop solution consisting of Linux-based X2Go server and cross-platform X2Go client. X2Go’s remote desktop protocol is originally based on NX technology which heavily relies on compression and caching to improve the performance and bandwidth efficiency of the native X display protocol. Out of box, X2Go tunnels remote desktop sessions over secure SSH, and comes with support for sound (via pulseaudio) and printer/file sharing. X2Go allows multiple users to access the same desktop host concurrently, and is compatible with multiple desktop environments including LXDE, XFCE, MATE and KDE3/4. X2Go server supports multiple authentication schemes such as SSH keys, Keberos/GSSAPI and GnuPG smart cards. Cross-platform X2Go client is available for Linux, OS X or Windows, and also as a browser plugin which allows you to access X2Go remote desktop sessions within a web browser.
