tunnels. The check "enable X11 Forwarding".
but sure to go back to Sessions and save the configuration for later.
Launch a black X session with NO windows manager in cygwin

now, while in putty, coneected to your remote linux machine,
lauch and linux GUI application,
all the processing will be done on the linux box, and you will controll it from windows.
it is also encrypted via SSH with blowfish. so noone on your windows network can
sniff what you are doing
