That is because you are attempting to run an OpenGL client?
If you run xdpyinfo, you would the information on what is supported
on X.

Unfortunately, we do not have GLX extension for DXWin32.  The support
for OpenGL/GLX for XWin server is in progress.  Our servers are DirectX
therefore we need to sort out some  display problems with GLX extensions
on DirectX based X-server (XWin).  The GLX extension would not be supported
