I have no idea what your setup looks like. By "connection", do you mean SSH with X-forwarding?

Either way you should definitely take a look at VirtualGL (http://www.virtualgl.org/).

From its wikipedia page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VirtualGL):


VirtualGL is an open source program that redirects the 3D rendering commands from Unix and Linux OpenGL applications to 3D accelerator hardware in a dedicated server and displays the rendered output interactively to a thin client located elsewhere on the network.
