Question Remote X-Desltop

I am having some trouble in getting a X-Desktop served up
to a remote Windoz box.

I can't seem to find the files that i need to edit and what the
necessary changes that need to made.

Can someone help me find out how to do this?

Yes I did try to do searches on this forum for various keys
but did not find the items needed.

Thank you.

Welcome to LQ!!!
In order to serve you better ... arghh I'll cut this crap, to make the story short tell us something, how do you want to access your linux desktop remotely from within windows? I mean I know it is doable - I am doing it right now, but the question is what are your requirements, and did you take any steps to fullfill the goal you set. There are different methods, VNC be the one, X-Win32 be another, etc. Do search again here on these forums: keywords are vnc, x-win32. You'll get quite a list, because the threads like this are floating around the forums daily.

I am trying to access the X-Desktop via Hummingbirds
Exceed X-Client. But I think that my current default
configuration has some items like #DisplayManager = 0
and needs to be rem'd out but I have not idea where the
KWM files are or what they are called to allow remote desktop
to work.

Also switching to a Less COSTLY X-client is also in the mix
One that is Easy to use and setup.

BTW Thank you for responding so soon
