My experience is opengl hardware always crashes when MATLAB runing under remote control. So my recommendation is let it as software.

Hardware-accelerated OpenGL, specified as hardware. All systems support using the opengl hardware command to switch from basic hardware to hardware OpenGL.
  • On Windows systems support using the opengl hardware command to switch from software to hardware OpenGL.
  • To switch from software to hardware on Linux systems, start MATLAB with the -nosoftwareopengl flag.
If your system automatically switched to using software OpenGL, then forcing your system to use hardware OpenGL can cause instabilities.
You can also refer to the following documentation for more information regarding same:
