you mean two different machines?

you will need to install an X server for windows, probably the best way is to
install cygwin http://www.cygwin.com/ then you can login via ssh or telnet

Access linux from windows

Yes I talking about two different machines ( connected over my network)
Thanks much for this pointer, however I could access Linux box in text mode only using cygwin. Could you please let me know how could I will be able to access KDE or GNOME from my windows machine.



Actually I would like to use KDE browser from windows machine.

If it is a full remote desktop you are looking for, have a look at NoMachines NX. Here is the download link.

http://www.nomachine.com/download.php

This is a secure, enterprise ready solution. You can configure a server on linux, and get windoze clients, or a linux client.

Then you are not doing it correctly
I can do it, are you starting the X server?
you getting an xterm or a console?
something like C:\cygwin\usr\X11R6\bin\startxwin.bat

you get a little white xterm, then xhost +
telnet to the linux box, set the DISPLAY to the local IP address.

I just did it, telnetted from DOS prompt, logged into a SUN box and
opend an xterm in a cygwin X session on my windoze box.




Whilst at work I use a product called exceed http://connectivity.hummingbird.com/...dex.html?cks=y

which is a commercial X server for windows.


NOTE: KDE, gnome and stuff will most likely run very slowly over the network
