X forwarding to windows - grep420 - 2004-01-23

Here is a screenshot of win2k running cygwin with XFree86. I have my fedora desktop X forwarded to it, as you can see. I did this by installing cygwin (, and using my cygwin term i just type startx. with my X session running on the windows box, I then open a terminal and [ ssh -X linuxbox ] this turns on X forwarding to the windows box. Once connected with ssh just type [ nautilus ] to open the remote desktop gui.
