You have two way:
 1) Install X server on your windows machine, start it, then set DISPLAY
variable on linux station to "your_windows_addr:x_display", where
your_windows_addr is network address of machine and x_display is display
number of X server
 2) Do not run megaco_filter process. In this case you can see megaco
messages on console, not in GUI.

Second question is that -  I am looking into erl_interface library

At least one erlang node should be started for MGC and one node for each MG.
Also you must write pice of code in erlang to handle megaco messages. The
easiest way is learn Erlang OTP, and write whole application on this
platform. You can write low-level part of application on C/C++, but it is
impossible to write high-level part, megaco messaging, on other language,
not Erlang.


Actually, i am bit hazy about this at this moment...
