X11 Display on Vista with ssh

Need an X11 interface that works quickly and for free... install Cygwin with X11 and openssh.... then make sure your ssh on your remote host has X11forwarding=yes.

from your bash shell in cygwin type startx a x11 xterm will come up and type:

DISPLAY=localhost:0.0 ssh -Y remotehost

you set... then any remote x app will appear on your desktop
