I have a problem with Cygwin. I am connecting from USA by ssh to the
Hector supermachine in Edinburgh ( I write "startx" in Cygwin and then I
use "ssh -Y firstname.lastname@example.org" ). Everything works fine, the
only problem is that the forwarding of the windows is very very slow. It
takes sometimes also up to 5 minutes to open a new window. I am
debugging a code with Totalview and it is a impossible to work. I am in
contact with the Hector support and with their computer they tried to
run Cygwin under windows and connecting by ssh (exactly like I am doing)
and they say that x-forwarding is fast.
The performance they're seeing probably has little to do with their
Cygwin version --- they're a lot closer, after all, so support's latency
is probably a lot lower.
Agreed. I would point out, however, that the OPs Cygwin versions are
pretty out-of-date as well. Though I'm not sure it will help in this
particular matter, it's worth thinking about upgrading.
