X2GO NOW ON ~OKEANOS IMAGES
We are happy to announce that as of today, all Linux desktop images provided under the "System" tab of the creation wizard, have been updated to have the X2Go Server pre-installed. X2Go is a great tool that allows you to connect remotely to your VMs and actually see their GUI. It's the same as using Remote Desktop (RDP) on Windows VMs. What's more, you 'll find that it is also very fast and secure.
For those that have tried NX in the past, we definitely suggest you give X2Go a shot. It's far easier to install and you can even use your SSH keys. From now on, X2Go is the recommended way to connect graphically to your VMs on ~okeanos.
For more information on how to use and install the X2Go client, please check out our user guide.
More colors, less hassle.
