Xming X ServerXming is the leading free unlimited X Window Server for Microsoft Windows (XP/2003/Vista). It is fully featured, light and fast, simple to install and because it is standalone native Microsoft Windows, easily transported portable as a Pocket PC X server. It is totally secure when used with SSH and optionally includes an enhanced PuTTY Link SSH client and a portable PuTTY replacement package.Xming is cross-compiled on Linux for Microsoft Windows (32-bit x86), using MinGW, mainly from the canonical X.Org source code with my patches applied. It is kept current and secure with constant updates from X.Org, XKB, FreeType2, Pthreads-Win32 and Freedesktop Bugzilla.When released Public Domain, Xming can be distributed and used without restriction as it is open source licensed, mostly MIT/X11. Using Xming Most operating systems have an X Window Server, why not Microsoft Windows? Note this website convention: Window = X Window Windows = Microsoft WindowsWhat can you use Xming for?All the normal X Window Server functions and some you might not have thought of * 'Project' your favourite X Window GUI applications onto a Microsoft Desktop. * Use your Windows machine as a thin client to Unix . * Extend available X client fonts to include those from Windows. * Use Xming with portablePuTTY as a Pocket PC X Server by copying both to a USB flash drive etc. Once made portable, no installed software or access to the Windows registry are needed. * Use as a KVM substitute. No need for expensive hardware or a tangle of leads. * Headless your *nix machines by removing keyboard, mouse, monitor and video card. Redirect the BIOS console and then access terminals via minicom (using a serial port) or PuTTY, and GUI's via Xming (using an ethernet). * You can display remote X clients directly on a Windows Desktop without running a remote Display Manager, providing you are not in XDMCP mode, and so free up the system resources used by that DM. * You can use the Xming X server, just locally, together with coLinux, Cygwin, Microsoft Services for Unix (SFU), (SUA) or UWIN. * Use SSH and X-Forwarding in -multiwindow mode instead of VNC to reclaim precious resources, including desktop space, and facilitate cut-and-paste between windows. * You can run Xming on multiple monitors in many ways, e.g. if you have two monitors on a Windows machine, you could put the full remote *nix session on the second monitor using Code: [Select] >Xming -screen 0 @2 -query <IP of remote machine> -clipboard -nodecoration * Configure a Linux kernel on a remote machine, 'make xconfig' i.e. using the convenient GUI method. * Update remote machines via the distribution's GUI tools e.g. for Mandriva use mcc, rpmdriva and MandrivaUpdate.
