Can you send me the full platform and installer information?  This
would include the exact distribution you're using on the workstation
and the server, and the Phenix installer you downloaded, as well as
the graphics driver being used on the workstation?

In general the OpenGL functions do not work very well over X11
forwarding; we recommend using a queuing system if you need to access
separate computing resources.  (Of course this is limited to
homogeneous systems with common filesystems, which I realize may not
always be feasible.)
