    VNC isn't an X server; it's just a RFB server. What exactly is it that you want to do?

    i think hes running windoze but wants to ditch the windoze gui in favour of X. Only thing i can think of is maybe cygwin but i dont know how well X runs on that?

    I want to connect to my computer remotely

    Ive used vnc but it seems kind of sllow

    x-win32 is a great program but its WAY TOO EXPENSIVE

    Micor Images MIX is good but you can only by a copy for one machine
    unless you want to pay for a floteing license

    cygwin works but its not exactly what i want to do. Its also a pain to configure

    Is there a way to get a Free X-server for windows so i can work on my server from different places.

    Nah, that's the thing. Cygwin is the _only_ way to get a free X server for Windows. All others are proprietary. I think it seems strange, but that's the way it is.
