My mistake, but...
I indeed didn't realize that there was a newer XWin.exe. I grabbed and
installed it and the -clipboard switch now doesn't stop the process. Ny
remote screen appears just fine. Sorry about my oversight.
However, the clipboard doesn't seem to function. I can't seem to copy
and/or paste from either remote <-> local. I tried windowed and
fullscreen with the same results. Here's my bat file:
start c:\cygwin\usr\x11r6\bin\xwin -query 192.168.0.10 -clipboard
Pretty basic. Any tips?
