There are several methods.
putty (SSH)

Exceed (commercial application) (commercial application)

I know that Cygwin/X and VNC can be run via SSH but not sure about the commercial products. I have personal experience with Exceed (work related), VNC and of course SSH but not the Cygwin/X or the starnet product.

Generally, Cygwin works alongside something like SSH. You run Cygwin on your windows PC, and then set the "dispaly" environment variable in your Linux SSH session to point to the windows PC's new X-Server. Any programs you start will pop-up on your Cygwin desktop. Just one of the advantges of having a client-server GUI model smile.gif

Cygwin/X will probably give the best performace, since X is designed to allow this. VNC tends to be a bit slow, but is suitable for system configuration.

Non-GUI is the most reliable and resource-friendly method, it is alos the only one that will work without X running/installed (and using resources) on the server.

I use openssh to connect with either a command line shell or sftp client. It works great:

There is also a gui with limited command line in winscp:

I use this too.
