So, there is the server where many users have gone and had their good times, using the text-based interface through a client such as PuTTY (or your favorite terminal client).

Anyway, I don't mind playing Nethack in console mode... However I do rather enjoy the graphical version far more. Are there any clients available that make use of graphical tilesets, and can connect to a public server?

The only such thing I'm aware of is the super awesome HTML5 (canvas + websockets) client for Dungeon Crawl. The problem is this requires a good MVC separation that's lacking in most roguelikes. – badp May 18 '11 at 22:27

I am hosting a public server which give the possibility to play a graphical nethack with tiles in a javascript frame. I am looking for people in order to try it. So you are welcome :) It's almost the same feeling as playing the windows/linux graphical version but with statistics and high-score online. And you have nothing to download.
