Download the ssh program then configure it to connect to your server. you can put the proxy setting in the configuration.
here is a link to a free ssh: http://www.icrew.org/mirror/ssh/old/SSHSecureShellClient-3.2.2.exe

Cygwin also has a nice free set of tools that can be helpful for connecting to a Linux system, including a free X-server:

I like to tunnel X through my ssh connection and putty handles this nicely.
