How to access redhat Linux box graphically from windows box?

Hi

I have a linux box and need to access from windows graphically

Code:
# uname -a
Linux pc-l416116 2.6.18-155.el5 #1 SMP Fri Jun 19 17:06:47 EDT 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

What components do I need to install on Linux and windows to do that?

TIA

You can install and configure sshd on linux and an ssh client on windows.

You can install an X Window System server on your Microsoft Windows system and that will enable you to access your Redhat graphical desktop from Microsoft Windows.

Xming is a popular X Window System server for Microsoft Windows.

All you need to install is CygwinX and putty on Windows. i can't remember the exact components of CygwinX you will need, but it is not the default installation. You will need to add a few of the options in there during the installer.

Then enable X11 forwarding in putty and set it to localhost, display 0.

xming should do the job. Above link given by 'bartus11' would be very useful. Please check.

If you just have to... you can use xrdp to give you rdp on Linux. There are actually some "good reasons" to do this.
