how do we setup render nodes? i am on OSX and would like to use a network connected PC running windows pro 7 with 5 nvidia gtx 980ti GPU's or alternatively a second mac workstation on OSX with one gtx 980ti card inside.

I would also like to know if we can daisy chain computers together to make render nodes without having a server setup.   I am running Macs.

Waiting to hear back from Tech on this one, but when I asked about it before, I believe this feature is functional, but without a standalone installer for the node computers, not currently available from Chaos.  Some of this has to do with licensing which should all become clear from Chaos pretty soon.  There's a lot of back and forth with Chaos on some of these features/bugs, so I'm wondering if we might need to start a new forum for FormZ under forums.chaosgroup.com?
