Well I know that using a X server (e.g Xming) installed on a Windows machine, I can see the graphical output of a remote machine on the Windows box. This is easy when remote machine is built using X windowing system. How it will work if both (local and remote) machines are Microsoft Windows machines? Saying another way can I force my Windows application to display its window on a remote Windows machine while program actually running on a local Windows box?
