I am trying to get Xwin running on my NT 4.0 SP 6.0. I am not a software developer I am a researcher who runs 2  NT machines and a Linux box. I need an Xserver so I can work on my Linux box from one of my NT machines. I maintain an Oracle DB on the Linux box and I query it with Perl scripts. I had hoped that Xwin would do the trick. Cygwin installed okay and the Xserver  starts but I get an "acquire keyboard" error and there is no keyboard input available. I am running a LogiTech PC/AT Keyboard (84-Key) - US English - cordless keyboard. If you think that Xwin is too unstable to use then I shall move to MI/X.

Thank you
