Sorry, syntax error.  Should be "-:+127.0.01"

I have also had this not work.  My work around was to set "allow loopback
connections", as you have done, and set AuthHosts to "-:127.0.0.1", which
means VNC will only accept connections on localhost.  Works just fine.

See the docs for more info on AuthHosts.

Subject: Vnc connection  loop-back only

I am setting up a network of Window 2000 machines connected by WAN links
and
wish to use VNC through SSH for management. I have succesfully tested
the
configuration with one small problem:
using the loop-back only option results in not being able to connect.
Without this option checked everything works fine.
I am using PuTTY as a SSH client with the NetworkSimplicity SSH server.
The
problem occurs with VNC 3.3.3r9 and also TightVNC. The last message from
the
SSH server debug output is- debug 3: channel 1 : waiting for connection.
With successful connections (with "Allow loop-back connections" checked,
but
not loop-back only) this message is followed by- debug 1 : channel 1 :
connected, and the desktop is exported to the connecting machine.
I would like to use the loop-back only option for the increased security
it
offers, is there any information 
or configuration I have overlooked?
