I am trying to install and run Genome Browse from a single instance on a server/cluster with virtualized nodes running 64 bit Linux (CentOS 6.6) for multi-user access. It is a headless server and most of the researchers will be using Windows 7. Some others will be using OS X. I have tried X11 forwarding from a node with ImageJ until the server admin installs the libraries necessary for running Genome Browse. I have found that ImageJ is rather laggy using xming and a little better using mobaxterm. I assume for now that it would be even slower with Genome Browse because of semantic zoom etc.
Is there an ideal X server for windows? Should I use xrdp and use Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection? Essentially there might be some lag/latency issues, but I do not want it to be extremely laggy. It will all be over LAN as well.
