Logging in

First read the documentation contained in the course folder to setup the NX Client.

After going through the setup described in the course book, a window will pop up prompting you for a username and password. Type the username and password you received and press Login. A screen should open up showing an Ubuntu desktop, which is very similar to a Windows desktop.

To download an NX client, go to NoMachine NX.
