Can I run Maestro on a remote machine and display to my local machine?
You can display from a remote machine to your local machine in several ways.
Remember that remote display is affected by network traffic and bandwidth, so it is recommended to display locally whenever possible.
If the local machine has an X server that has the GLX and OpenGL extensions, you can use X forwarding directly. First, you must start the X server, then open a terminal window and connect to your remote machine with ssh -X, and then start Maestro. The display is forwarded to your local machine. Recent Macintosh computers have an X server with these
capabilities. On Windows, you can use the Exceed X server with the Exceed3D module (from Hummingbird). The display performance should be good, particularly
if you have hardware-accelerated OpenGL on your local graphics card.
If you want to run Maestro on a Windows machine and display to Linux, you can use rdesktop to connect from the local Linux machine to the remote Windows machine, and run Maestro.
You can use NX client (from nomachine.com) to display from Linux to Linux, Windows or Macintosh machines. The NX server must be installed
on the Linux machine that you want to run on, and the client installed on your local machine.
