Had never heard of them, thanks. Do you have experience with them over connections that drop, eg; travelling on a train, or connections as low as 3kbps?

They work at least decently over connections that drop - I can't remember if they autoconnect or keep things alive like mosh or if it works more like screen. Low bandwidth is surprisingly good - not sure if I've gone as low as 3Kbps but I do remember working out of a hotel room in China to a Linux machine in Iceland over NX. The regular web was hardly usable but NX was fine!, even good enough to browse the web over.

Wow, okay, that's good to know, another way around the Great Firewall. I will have to give NX a spin.
