Xterm client

Can anyone recommend a good XTerm client? Would Putty be a good one? What about Cygwin?

Can anyone recommend a good XTerm client? Would Putty be a good one? What about Cygwin?

Your terminolgy is a little off... I presume that you are asking for a Xserver to run on a Windows machine, which would allow you to run X applications on a remote (unix) machine and view them on the Windows machine.

Cygwin is OK, I use it at work (mainly for a bash shell and familiar command line tools), and can be used in a rootless mode so that X applications are intermixed with the native Win32 apps. It does have a few problems though, and some apps really don't like it.

Another option would be Xming (https://sourceforge.net/projects/xming/), which I haven't tried yet.

Cheers,

Mungewell.

Xming is cool, but was pretty unstable last time I used it (about a year ago).
