X11 Forwarding to Vista: Pt 2

Wow. The performance on the Cygwin only X11 tunneling is horrible. I was able to improve performance significantly, however, by going back to PuTTY. In the PuTTY settings for the server, I went to Connection / SSH / X11 and checked Enable X11 Forwarding.

Now, launch Cygwin, PuTTY to target, launch graphical application. Performance still sucks, but it works. Hey, its not like this is the only application that has taken a hit under Vista!
