NX is a software suite which implements very efficient compression of
the X11 protocol. This increases performance when using X
applications over a network  especially a slow one.
nxagent is an agent providing NX transport of X sessions. The
application is based on the well-known Xnest server. nxagent  like
Xnest  is an X server for its own clients, and at the same time, an X
client for a system's local X server.
The main scope of nxagent is to eliminate X round-trips or transform
them into asynchronous replies. nxagent works together with nxproxy.
nxproxy itself does not make any effort to minimize round-trips by
itself  this is demanded of nxagent.
Being an X server  nxagent is able to resolve all the property/atoms
related requests locally  ensuring that the most common source of
round-trips are nearly reduced to zero.
