Using vnc through ssh
Sat Jan 4 22:37:00 2003
I am trying to use vnc through ssh and I'm having loopback problems. Let's
make sure I know what should be happening first.
I start ssh with ssh -L 5900 localhost:5900 username@serveripaddress
vnc viewer on my computer connects to localhost:0, where no vnc server is
ssh forwards the request to port 22 on serveripaddress
the ssh server at serveripaddress forwards the request to its own port 5900
Is that correct?
I was getting a "Local loopback not allowed" (or something like that) on the
server computer, so I added a registry setting (AllowLoopback = DWORD
0x00000001) to allow loopback. Now my viewer is telling me "Local loop-back
connections are disabled". How do I make this work?
