NT Server, ME client, ssh tunnel with Putty (was: Win2000
VNC server over SSH0
Sat Nov 30 16:26:01 2002
You need to save the settings...
This is a bit NON intuitive in putty...
The way I do (using putty 5.3) it is as follows:
1) Under seesion I enter the Host name, I the enter the name of the
seesion and press save... The new session name apears in the list...
--- or ---
1) I click on the seesion I want ot modify and press load...
2) I configure/change all of the features (inlcuding port forwarding)...
3) I go back to the session screen and save the seesion...
4) Finaly I can start the session, by pressing the OPEN button...
BTW you can start putty from the command line with the command:
putty -load "session name", Which I have as a short-cut in my remote
As to weither you should use putty, or a command-line...
IHO, I think the tight-vnc people got it right, namely the additional
vnc parameter "-via [<user>@]host"... this tells vnc to start the ssh
As second best I find putty, since I can easily setup multiple tunnels
using it's GUI, and then start them all together. In this form I have a
"Host_XXX Connect" shortcut, which I start before I work with/on a host
and shutdown afterwards...
Hope that helps...
