I try to display remote clients and I follow the 
Cygwin/XFree86 User's Guide.

"In an X terminal type /usr/X11R6/bin/xhost remote_hostname_or_ip_address"
and this is ok.

"In an X terminal type /usr/bin/telnet remote_hostname_or_ip_address. Use
the explicit path to ensure that Cygwin's telnet is run instead of
Microsoft's telnet; Microsoft's telnet will crash on startup when run from
but I don't have the /usr/bin directory or a telnet
file and I can't set DISPLAY=windows_hostname_or_ip_address:0.0

If a try to use the microsoft telnet and I type:

> setenv DISPLAY=windows_hostname_or_ip_address:0.0,

I have:
> Error: Can't open display: windows_hostname_or_ip_address:0.0=

What can I do?
