well you'd need to install an ssh server on windows, e.g. through cygwin. not sure what you really expect to get out of it though.

a please or thank you wouldn't hurt next time ;-)

I got a kick out of this quote from the ssh article on Wikipedia:
Code:
An SSH client program is typically used for establishing connections to an SSH daemon accepting remote connections. Both are commonly present on most modern operating systems, including Mac OS X, most distributions of GNU/Linux, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, Solaris and OpenVMS.
That aside, the thread title talks about accessing the Windows GUI with ssh--that somehow does not seem likely.

I think at first you should try something which in native to W$. Using ssh is simple executing commands on a remote computer, rsh or secure replacement ssh are UNIX/BSD solutions. I googled a bit and it seems that W$ has its own shell (a true one) and which enables to run a command remotely

If you want to access the GUI of a Windows computer from a different computer you normally wouldn't use SSH, but RDP. Active the server for RDP on your Windows system and then use rdesktop on Linux to connect to the system.
Alternatively you can setup a VNC server on Windows and use a VNC client on Linux.
