I would like to control Blender on a remote server (Ubuntu, local network) from my Notebook (Windows 7).
Until now I evaluated the following configurations, none of them works satisfactorily.
1 VNC (followed this tutorial)
Result: Applications like Firefox, Libre-Office work but Blender's UI is rendered incomplete and unusable.
MobaXTerm supports SSH and comes with its own X-Server: Again firefox and other apps work but Blender crashes:
$ blender Color management: using fallback mode for management connect failed: No such file or directory X Error of failed request: GLXBadRenderRequest Major opcode of failed request: 146 (GLX) Minor opcode of failed request: 1 (X_GLXRender) Serial number of failed request: 154 Current serial number in output stream: 179
3 Run Ubuntu under VMWare and Tunnel X through SSH
Blender starts flawless but the connection (100MBit/s) is so slow that it takes 2-3s to open a menu. Instructions on AskUbuntu
Is there an alternative to the methods I tried?
The MobaXterm settings that worked for me:
