Win2000 VNC server over SSH
Thu Nov 28 01:45:00 2002
Before anyone pulls their hair out, I have studied the article on this
subject at http://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/sshvnc.html in detail, as well
as the post relating to WinNT at
[probably I've missed something] to no avail.
My configuration: Windows 2000 Professional SP3 with RealVNC 3.3.5 and
NetworkSimplity OpenSSH 3.4p1, both installed as services.
VNC server runs successfully when viewed over a direct ethernet connection
[switch, same subnet, ports opened on firewall] using the VNCThing client on
SSH server runs successfully when a simply login connection is established
from the MacOSX host.
However, I cannot get port forwarding to work with sshd<->vncserver. I run:
ssh -L 5901:<Win2Khost>:5900 <Win2Khost>
on the MacOSX client, but when I then attempt to connect to localhost:1
using VNC viewer (VNCThing) I get a message saying the connection was
refused because the password was incorrect [it's not].
By using tcpdump I have established that there is TCP traffic between
exchanged between <MacOSXhost>:random-port and <Win2Khost>:22 after I
attempt to connect to localhost:1 via VNC, so the port forwarding on the
client-side would seem to working?
