As subject, I've X forwarding working from a Windows client if I use the Cygwin terminal and do:
DISPLAY=:0 ssh -Y me@remote-host
If I were to use PuTTY from the same Windows host (checked Enable X forwarding, set X display location to
:0) and run, say,
xclock from the terminal, I get connection refused. I wondered what I'm missing.
The only reason I'm looking to get PuTTY is that the Cygwin console has a rather noticeable refresh lag.
