- X forwarding in PuTTY

just brew it! wrote:X forwarding over PuTTY (or OpenSSH, if you install Cygwin) with public key authentication is probably your best bet.
I assume the application already exists? (If starting from scratch I'd suggest doing it as a web-based app, that way users could just use a web browser...)

It is just an .exe that has Xorg, OpenSSH, and many other tools built in. If you buy a professional license, you'll get a customizer that will let you create a tailored version of Mobaxterm.
I'm not sure how well the customizer works since I don't have a professional license, but that could solve deployment headaches.
