However, if you can get an X server for your Windows system, it's relatively easy to run remote GUI sessions. There are a few PuTTY command options needed to open the X channel, but it's not that hard. You do have to have X installed on the remote machine also, but there are meta-packages that can do that. Depending on how the remote system was set up, they may already be there.
