confusion with solution implementation

I first want to apologise ahead of time if this issue has already been addressed by this forum, but as far as I could tell, it hadn't been.

This solution involves two machines: BoxA and BoxB. BoxA is my main workstation (WinXP) and BoxB is used for misc. tasks (it runs Red Hat 9).
I want BoxB to run my p2p clients and download the files onto BoxA.

BoxA has its own seperate interent connection (DSL) and so does BoxB (Cable). Each of the boxes has 2 interfaces: eth0 takes the incomming net connection and eth1 connects to eth1 on the other box via crossover cable.


So basically, I want to BoxB to download stuff to a shared network drive on BoxA.

Also, I need to be able to login to BoxB from BoxA and use the gui to manipulate the p2p progs (having access to the gui like one does with windows Remote Desktop Connection)

What packages/services do I need and how do I do this?

so you want to login to the Linux Box from WindowsXP.
You need to configure Your Linux Machine to run an X server over the network,
and you need a Win32 version of the XFree86 CLient.

im told a windows version exists, but ive never seen one !

Thanks qwijibow,

what do you mean:
im told a windows version exists, but ive never seen one !
You've never seen a windows version of XFree86 CLient - like you've never seen microsoft's answer to XFree86 CLient? If so, it's called Remote Desktop Manager, and it comes standard with WindowsXP.

Or are you saying that you've never seen an Win32 version of XFree86 CLient - like you've never seen a version of XFree86 CLient that will run on a windows box?
