We don't have much of an OFF viewer that runs on a PC, but you could pick up a copy of geomview that just sends bitmaps to the X display: it's at ftp://geom.umn.edu/priv/slevy/gvx-161p9e-sgi.tar.gz and contains two executables, which should be extracted in your geomview installation directory (e.g. /usr/local/Geomview): bin/sgi/gvx The standard geomview executable (with some bugs fixed) bin/sgi/gvx.MESA geomview executable using MESA OpenGL-like library, which should work with any X server. You'd be able to make the MESA version be the default by setenv GEOMVIEW_GVX /usr/local/Geomview/bin/sgi/gvx.MESA and then running geomview. Another possibility: I'm told that some commercial Windows X servers do support the GLX extension. This would take advantage of 3D graphics acceleration hardware on the PC, and even without it, would probably run faster than sending images over the network. One of these commercial X servers is described at http://www.hummingbird.com/products/exceed/exceed3d.htm
