I want to install Cadsoft Eagle on a Linux server, and then use that installation from my other boxes and by that keeping my settings and drawings between environments. A simple remote application scenario.

If I was to run it on a Windows server I'd have to pay RDP/TS licenses I suppose, and I wish to avoid that. So therefore I want to run it on Linux.

For my Linux clients I can open a ssh -X session and run the app. This is not a problem.

On windows I can use MobaXterm or Xming. It has some extra steps involved, and I would like to streamline this process, and maybe there is better alternatives I could use?

It sounds like X forwarding is what you need. You can launch programs remotely and display them. If you are going from a Linux client, just use ssh -X user@host programname. Of on windows there are solutions, but I'm not entirely sure what. On OSX you just need to install the X server that comes with the development tools.

Edited my question to hopefully show what I'm wanting. :) –  rozon Mar 10 '13 at 20:44
Not sure if any such thing exists without config on Windows clients. I've heard good things about Xming for X-forwarding on windows, but I don't think it would be any easier than MobaXterm –  ssmy Mar 10 '13 at 22:37
