Emacsclient just passes the paths to Emacs, so it should know about the
same tramp transports as Emacs. More troublesome is getting emacsclient
on GNU/Linux to talk over TCP/IP (by default it uses local sockets),
configuring Emacs on Windows to listen for remote connections (by
default it only responds to local requests for security reasons), and
remembering to supply the file paths in their remote form that the Emacs
instance running on Windows can load.  The X server running on Windows
route is much easier, and if you use the Xming server, you can run
rootless, so the X windows appear as native Windows on your desktop (I'm
not sure if Cygwin/X supports this, as Cygwin tends to be a more self
contained environment).
