Errr... what is the difference between "application that I have built using the cross-compiler" (which results IMHO in a binary) and "the binaries generated have to be run on a linux based "? That is, what is the difference between binary and binary?
Anyway, what keeps you from compiling your sources on the embedded system? Just install samba and telnet server and gcc, make, whatever you need, and there you go. Much easier than messing around with cygwin and such stuff. BTW your embedded board, is it x86 compatible, or something else?
