    NX Server Web Player

    Not sure if this is the best place for this enquiry.

    I've got NX server up and running on my Ubuntu box. I can connect to the server from a client installed on my Windows XP laptop.

    According to the nomachine documentation here and here the built-in "Web Player" should allow me connect to my server using any browser by pointing it to http://ipaddress:4080. I would therefore not have to use the client software and it might work on my smartphone/tablet, which would be really handy.

    The docs say a pre-requisite is Apache, which I have installed and is working. On my laptop I can see the welcome pageserver from Ubuntu just fine.

    However, when trying to access the Web Player I get (in Chrome) "This web page is not available".

    Has anyone got NX Web Player to work successfully and can help me get it up and running please? It's on the same network, I have no software firewall on my server.

    Thanks.

    I found the answer in the end - the version with web player integrated hasn't actually been released fully yet.

    Hi, so are you connecting via browser now such as http://ipaddress:4080? If you can you let me know how you got it working?

    Thanks,

    Depending which version of NX you are running, you may need to download, install and configure NX Web Player separately.

    Thanks for responding. I'm still working on getting this work. I'm now trying to set up the NX Web Companion instead. I'm getting this error once I navigate to my servers web address;

    http://mywebserverIP.com/plugin/nxapplet.html

    I have the NX Server, Client & node installed and I followed these instructions to set up the "NX Web Companion";

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NX_Web_Companion

    The error I get using Google Chrome is this:
    The option to support Java applets may be disabled in your browser
    or you haven't a suitable Java Plugin installed.

    Click on button below to download
    the Java Plugin.

    Or if I use Internet Explorer: "An add on for this website fail to run.

    About my server:
    My Ubuntu server version is: Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS Percise i686

    My Java version:
    java version "1.6.0_24"

    OpenJDK Client VM (build 20.0-b12, mixed mode, sharing)

    Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this issue are greatly appreciated.

    Re: NX Server Web Player

    I would suspect this error has something to do with the Java version I have installed on the server. Don't you think?
