   I am a big fan of Nomachine, and I use it on my personal workstation.

However, in my experience Nomachine does not handle OpenGL accelerated
graphics - there is a recipe on their site for doing that, but it did
not work for me.

Also, and I hesitate to do a company down who I think are generally
marvellous, they were not interested in doing an IA64 version for our
Prism visualization system.

If anyone is using Nomachine NX successfully to run a remote display
of a decently specced visualization box running Linux and OpenGL then
I'd really like to hear about it.
