Connect from Unix to Windows via ssh and start an applycation which is using the windows display

The solution I use is VNC ( )

This is an open source / cross platform remote desktop
tool. Basically it ships the screen pixels back from a
remote server to a local client, and forwards mouse and
keyboard commands the opposite way.

Not only can you run any program on the remote computer
you can also watch what someone is doing - invaluable
for help desks tracking user problems.

Both the server daemon and client browser are available
for windows + unix.
