This is my first post and hope I will get quick response which will help me solve my problem.
I am trying to connect to remote Linux machine via Cygwin but it showing nothing on the screen except grey background.On the other screen it gives XF86 is not supported error.

This was working with other machines so no problem with my cygwin installation.
