install cygwin on the Windows machine and then use its telnet or ssh to connect to your FreeBSD machine. > (probably gnome2-lite) on the FreeBSD machine and install an > xserver on the Vista machine, but then what? Any pointers to > guides and such are welcome. > All you need on the FreeBSD machine is an installed X and telnet or better ssh enabled. It is your choice where you run the WM. It can run on the Windows machine - which gives a better response - or the FreeBSD machine. Start small with telnet and plain X on FreeBSD enabled and cygwin with X. X can display then your windows directly as Windows windows.
