Thanks Varka, can you tell me how to set it up?

Last night I tried running 

esd -tcp -public

from my cygwin session on the win2k laptop and then
setting the environment variable

export ESPEAKER=<ip of my windows box>:16001

on my freebsd box but when I tried to play music on 
xmms and rhythmbox the sound still came out of the 
speakers on the freebsd box.
