Putty X11 proxy: unable to connect to forwarded X server: Network error: Connection refused

Cygwin doesn't listen anymore on TCP-IP, you have to add the following parameters:

-listen tcp
  • Start XLaunch
  • In the Extra Settings step, add in the additional parameters box: -listen tcp
  • Windows will ask if you want to permit that Xserver makes TCP connection.

If you have made a configuration file, you can make a shortcut with the following parameters:

C:\cygwin64\bin>xlaunch.exe -run config.xlaunch
