I have the same kind of issues as Damon below, but in a different context.

NT VNC server, RealVNC 3.3.5, sshd v1.0.2 from
(Also have vncserver 3.3.4 on RH7.1 linux test box)
Client Windows ME, Putty ssh client 0.53b (www.chiark.greenend.org.uk) ,
RealVNC 3.3.5 client

Similar, can ssh to the NT box with PuTTY from the ME.

Being on ME I don't have the commandline ssh. Putty has a dialog for
port forwarding setup, where I ask for the equivalent
L 5901:localhost:5900 to try and set up to the NT box, or
L 5902:localhost:5901 to try to tunnel to the Linux box.
Just once or twice I have seen successful 'forwarding from port 5902
to localhost:5901' (or ..1 to ..0) messages in the putty Event log. On
those occasions VNC worked. Then afer exit, do exactly the same ssh
tunnel setup and no port forwarding is set up.
I appreciate that this is more a PuTTY problem than a VNC one - but
has anyone else experienced it?
Alternatively I wonder if I might be better off finding a way to run
ssh direct from a commandline on the ME box - is there a good source
for that somewhere?
