'[OT]: Remote MSWindows with X ?'

The remote GUI thread has reminded me of something I was thinking about a while back;

Out of interest do any of you know of an xclient for MS Windows? i.e. something that would let me
control MS apps from a *nix machine ?
I have seen VNC, but it's a proprietary protocol... a genuine xclient would be interesting...

       I think you are looking for a server, and not a client!

In theory you can build X11 clients at least under NT but I have never
done this. Normally a X11 client does NOT display anything on the machine
it runs on, but I think that one could incorporate both the X11 protocol
stubs and the native windows SDK into the same application. This monster
would be at most as reliable as the M$ operating system under it, and
although X11 is robust, it might cause troubles at the remote end somehow
(on the Unix machine).

The short way to do this is to use Tcl/Tk and vtcl as app builder. Tcl can
talk 'across' platforms over TCP/IP.

We use Exceed here to use a Unix CAD system via PC's. Seems to work fine.

Remember that you have to run the xdcmp daemon running in the linux side
first before using the X-Server on the Windows side, I have tested X-Win
32, I downloaded the Demo from Tucows Windows -> Server tools -> X - Window
server (it works for an hour or something like that), its cheap (not for
me, maybe for you, $50)
