Also, if you're networked (I guess you are), you could just log into these Unix boxes from your W2K workstation. My prefered ssh client is Putty http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/ but there are plenty others. And if you need an X server, cygwin has one built-in.

hi,
If it is only Text screen you want to see just Telent command from your windows machine is susfficient ..
and if you want some advanced terminal features..Softwares like "putty" will be use ful to use SSH.
If the graphixs console is needed , you may want to get Exceed software from humming bird.or ad _nn_ said get it form Cygwin.

I'm sure the solution you've gotten is perfect for your needs, but just as a by-the-by, there is a product that installs on your PC to give you a unix-like command shell environment.  You can actually run your unix shell scripts on your PC, and there are look-alike utilities like grep & awk.  Its called MKS Toolkit.

No, its not free.  But if your interested, you can find out more about it at www.mkssoftware.com
