X-windows system, forwarding the display from the server to the PC.

Software must be installed on the PC to make this link work and the best software (so far) for this task is the PuTTy terminal emulator and the Xming X-window client.

PuTTy can be downloaded from http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/
Xming can be downloaded from http://sourceforge.net/project/downloading.php?group_id=156984&filename=Xming-6-9-0-31-setup.exe

Configuring PuTTy

The most important setting is the X11 Forwarding.

Without that set, the X-window system cannot find your PC for display
