Subject: Looking for help

Hello all, 

I am looking for a doc that will hopefully explain how to setup Cygwin
to allow me to SSH to a system and run startx and have the X Window
environment be routed through the tunnel. Is there such a document?

Right now, I have Cygwin loaded with SSH and when I log into my remote
system and type SSH, I see the X server start on the remote machine, and
no X Windows in my Cygwin session. I assume this is a common issue and
any help would be appreciated.
