ssh running Windows applications on XP

Ivans Chou
I cannot seem to open any Windows applications connecting to a Windows
XP Pro machine running cygwin via ssh.  The applications appear to run,
but the window does not appear on the screen. Is this not possible or am
I doing something wrong?

It's not possible unless you start the sshd service with "Interact with
desktop" setting.  See Windows' services MMC snap-in.
