If the Solaris machine is a server and you are accessing it over the network using Exceed, putty or even telnet then fonts on your workstation are what will be used, if you are doing graphical stuff then the X-server on your workstation (e.g. exceed or cygwin) is where the font is selected.

So how do you access your server?

So it is the Citrix server where you are getting your fonts from.

You need a Windows expert but I imagine Putty has a setting.
According to this:

you change the font in the session settings, Courier-new or system are fonts worth trying first.
