I can get XPra to work with very little effort.
And I like it, its much faster than X11-fwding through ssh. But there is still some lag when using very graphics heavy applications on slow links.For example if I open google maps on remote computer and zoom in and out ... experience is not great.
On the other hand, I am struggling to get any of the opensource versions of NX to work (including one from WinSwitch).
Is it worth the effort? Is NX technology any different from Xpra. Will it be faster compared to Xpra?
BTW, I only need seamless mode. I dont want remote desktop.
