Hi, I'm trying to remote control a linux device

It has openssh installed and running, I've got cygwin with the X-server installed on the windows desktop

I can connect to the device no problem using cygwins "XWin Server" application (ssh -X ....... -l username) then enter the password it all goes through fine and connects, but the screen isn't actually shown (trying to GUI remote control)

X11Forwarding is enabled on linux.

Tried using Xming as well but seems I can only connect using CLI

Any ideas?

What do you mean remote control?

For some a command interface to the machine suffices, i.e. I can restart, shutdown start a server ... yada yada.

The XWin server will allow you to launch gui apps from withing the terminal, e.g. chromium& ..., transmission&, etc...

If you want a remote gui login you need something like nomachine NX. It's free, but do use version 3.5, you need a server installed on the machine you want to connect to, also a client.

I've tried using VNC over SSH soon as I connect it just gives me connection gracefully closed (using tightVNC)
