Setting up X-win32


Hi,
I was wondering if anybody could help me set up X-Win32 on my PC. I need to connect to a debian system and I don't know which connect method to use.(StarNetSSH, rsh, rexec, XDMCP). I know there is a command line to export graphics back to my PC using xterm -Display .... but I am not sure what it is. If anybody could help, I would highly appreciate it. Thanks
Amish

I usually use rexec to connect to unix/solaris. I think it depends on what the computer you want to connect to is running. If you have an ssh server installed, then use ssh...

I have no idea how to export the graphics...

Code:
xhost +server
export $DISPLAY=client:0.0
xapp
Works with SSH. the xhost command should be run and the enviroment variable set when you start X on the client and log into the server, respectively. Then, all you need to do is run the xapp command.

Thanks for the answer everybody,
sorry for the late reply, been busy with projects.
I guess I did not set up my $DISPLAY variable properly. I have it set in .bashrc now so everytime i log in it's set.

I was wondering if it was possible to import the whole desktop environment of a linux machine to a windows machine. That is I would like to ssh into my linux box and type a command to make the desktop of my linux box appear on my windows machine via X11 tunnelling or some other means. I have two monitors and I would like one to display the windows desktop and the other one display the linux desktop. I cannot use a kvm switch since the linux box is far from the windows box. Thank in advance,
Amish

Code:
X -query hostname
There is a way to do the tunnelling, but I haven't tried cause I have only done this on a LAN. XDMCP-HowTo has lots of information on this.

Try something like VNC if you need your desktop.
