Near-Bingo again!   ;-)

Actually, nxserver calls nxnode. And nxnode runs nxagent (for
remote X11 sessions), nxviewer (for remote VNC sessions) or
nxdesktop (for remote RDP sessions).

nxagent, nxviewer and nxdesktop are the unchanged executables
created by NoMachine (or better, compiled from the sources
NoMachine provide). nxagent is derived from Xnest, nxviewer is
derived from vncviewer and nxdesktop is derived from rdesktop.
These nx* executables are, however, speed-boosted by the
nxcomp and nxcompext compression and caching libraries.
