Actually, he is not too savvy. Basicaslly, just setting up putty icons
will work for him if he first runs exceed, which he can do at startup.
I'm sure exceed does not bundle the ssh extension. 2 people in my office
have Exceed 2007. In any case, when he returns from his conference
either today or Monday we'll see if the putty solution works for him. If
it doesn't, I'll look into Mocha or Xming to see which of the two meet
our needs.

On a technical basis, exceed works with rlogin, but with rexec we get a
dialog box "where are you". One of my coworkers encountered that a few
years ago, when we were running RHEL 4, and through some googling she
found the solution. I'd like to look for a solution just to file away,
but I will be removing thr RSH/REXEC/RLOGIN suite from the one server
