I just tried out the visualization via VNC over the network. I have on both
machines Debian Unstable installed. Both use XOrg 7.1. The remote machine has
the ATI OpenGL drivers installed, the local machine has the XOrg Radeon
As a VNC server I start x11vnc v.0.8.2 on the remote machine using the
following command from the local machine:
ssh -L 5901:127.0.0.1:5901 10.71.10.1 'x11vnc -localhost -display :0'
As a VNC client I start TightVNC viewer v.1.2.9 on the local machine using the
vncviewer -encodings "copyrect tight zrle hextile" 127.0.0.1::5901
Remote controlling my GATE simulation machine this way, I can get the OpenGL
visualization to work just fine. It might be a bit sluggish though.
I just tried exporting the visualization window onto the local desktop with
only little success. It managed to completely freeze my Desktop.
I hope this will help you to get things to work.

That's a good idea! I'm gonna have a try. Please keep me
posted about your result, too.
