X Server for Windows, Xming

Running programs remotely through ssh is great with Linux or Mac OS X with the –X flag. Not quite as easy with Windows. I lean on PUTTY for my ssh, which of course does not come with an X Server. Xming will piggy back with Putty to run an X Server on windows and allow you to remote the application with the –X flag. The application has worked great for running GUIs off the HPC through ssh.


"Xming is the leading free unlimited X Window server for Microsoft Windows (XP/2003/Vista). It is fully featured, small and fast, simple to install and being standalone native Microsoft Windows, easily transported portable as a Pocket PC X server."
