G'day,

If you're running Winsock, you may want to take a look at Starnet's
Xwin package.  It is very reasonably priced (around Can$100) and very
stable.  A free demo version, which is fully functional is available
by anonymous ftp from ftp.cica.indiana.edu /pc/win3/demo as
xwindemo.zip.  The demo has a restriction that only one copy per
subnet can be run at a time.

If you like it, dick at starnet.com would be pleased to help you with
purchasing details.  They have a nice DOS-based X-server also
(micro-X-enlite).

Disclaimer: I have no association with Starnet, I just like their
program and their style... they answered my questions about their
demo, before I bought a copy.
