Xming (http://freedesktop.org/wiki/Xming) is an X Windows port for Microsoft Windows. Essentially it’s an X-server which starts transparently on top of your MS Windows desktop. It allows you to redirect graphical output of applications you run on remote *nix servers and therefore see these applications windows on your MS Windows desktop. Xming is very simple and easy to use. You can download its distribution archive from the project’s page on SourceForge: XMing @ SourceForge (http://sourceforge.net/projects/xming).
This article explains on how to use Xming to run graphical applications on remote *nix servers and see the output on your windows desktop
