I have spent a great amount of time today trying to get a remote X-WIndow session on my Windows PCs (using CygWin) to my Ubuntu system. In WIndows I am used to starting a remote desktop connection and going right to my remote system. Things are a little more complicated at the moment in Ubuntu. First, I had to find the place yesterday to enable an SSH server to begin the process. Today I thought I would spend a small amount of time, discover the magic I need to master and then get it all to work well for me. This didn’t quite happen. I still do not have the ability to open an X-WIndow session remotely and I am having difficulty trying to Google the topic because I am not sure what I am looking for.

Can you not just use some simple VNC app to control your Win machine?
