    How does VirtualGL client communicates its "Display" profile to VirtualGL server. After doing

    #vglconnect root@<server-ip>

    #./xdpyinfo

    Kindly tell me the information that is output pertains to the server display configuration or the client display configuration.

    Also tell me whether the "GLX" extension need to be present in the output.

    Thanks.

    xdpyinfo will tell you about the client display.  The client display does not need GLX.  VirtualGL will attempt to do its 3D rendering on display :0 on the server, which does need GLX (hardware-accelerated GLX.)
