Any VNC client for Windows should do.
Personally I use TightVNC from http://www.tightvnc.com/

what should i define in tightvncserver

let us say my server ip is 192.168.0.88:-----
The first port number is 5901 so 192.168.0.88:5901 should do.
On your linux box run the following commands,

vncserver
<enter password>
vi ~/.vnc/xstartup
Uncomment the lines which disables GUI
Restart VNC by
vncserver -kill :1 (assuming the started session was 1)
vncserver

Go to your windows 7 desktop
Double click on vnc icon and enter the IP and session ID as
192.168.0.88:1
Enter password

An issues that might crop up would be your firewall might block access to the VNC port. So you would need to write a rule to the IP tables firewall to allow access or shutdown iptables altogether.
Hi,

find the attached file for step by step vnc setup.

Aftr vnc server setup done , go to any windows desktop
use the tightvnc viewer and provide  login details of VNC server.
