[Sidefx-houdini-list] Renderoing OpenGL node from command line

Hi all,

Is this possible?  We are investigating offloading captures for 
approvals to our farm.  I know you would need an OpenGL card, so it 
would be submitted to the workstations that come online at night.

If I try this in a terminal on my workstation, I get the following error 
message -

'No Protocol specified, Cannot open the myDisplay, Is your DISPLAY
environment variable set?'

Any ideas?  I have googled it, but nothing worthwhile came up, hoping 
someone else has tried this.
