Yay. Always a nice way to end a thread.

Maybe NX (nomachine.org) would be a better option than X forwarding, esp if this is for a standard firefox session

Its up now but not working. 7 minutes passed and not opened even a single website. I was expecting like ordinary browser that I am using. How can I speed up? Now 15+ minutes passed and not opened any website

Is there any other solution?

Lets say that your Firefox window has the size of 1024x768 pixels in truecolor, which means 3 bytes per pixel (4 if you count in transparency, but let's go with 3). So to display a single image Firefox needs to transfer 2.3 MB of data to your X-server. Whenever Firefox gets the signal to redraw its image, may be from your X-server because of overlapping windows or simply because the content has changed, this amount of data has to be transferred again. This can seriously slow down Firefox, especially if you have limited bandwidth, like using a dial-up modem.

The solution would be to use something that handles this better, with transferring only the changed parts and using compression. As acid_kewpie already stated, NX is worth a look.

The NX Service is not available or the NX access was disabled on host myserver.com

Have you set up the NX server on your server?

Your system is missing a library that is necessary to run nxserver. How did you install it? Which distribution is running on your server.

What I did so far:

1) Downloaded
nxclient-3.5.0-7.i386.tar.gz
nxnode-3.5.0-7.i386.tar.gz
nxserver-3.5.0-9.i386.tar.gz

2) tar xvzf nxserver*

3) mv NX /usr/

4) /usr/NX/scripts/setup/nxserver --install
but its showing following message
Code:
# /usr/NX/scripts/setup/nxserver --install
NX> 704 ERROR: Cannot add user: nx.
NX> 704 ERROR: User: nx already exists.
NX> 704 To fix the problem, you may try to completely uninstall NX
NX> 704 Server and install it from scratch. If this is not enough,
NX> 704 please delete the nx user by using the system commands and
NX> 704 proceed with a new installation of NX Server.
5)
Code:
# /usr/NX/scripts/setup/nxserver --uninstall

NX> 702 Uninstalling: server at: Tue Apr 24 07:24:18 2012.
NX> 702 Shutting down.
/usr/NX/bin/nxserver: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/NX/lib/perl/IO.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
NX> 702 ERROR: Cannot shutdown nxserver.

# /usr/NX/bin/nxserver --shutdown
/usr/NX/bin/nxserver: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/NX/lib/perl/IO.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Which distribution are you running? In most cases it is easier to install the versions from your systems repositories, since that will also install the necessary dependencies and handle other stuff, like in this case creating the appropriate user.

EDIT: I have just seen your other thread. Setting up your server as proxy is a much more performant and hassle free solution. Please provide which distribution you are running on your server to the other thread, so that people can help you there.

Thanks for favorable replies

He said please discuss this on the other thread. You might be new to Linux, but I'm sure you're not new to reading
