Somewhere I read that *some version* of VNC that auto-selects, will select
wrong, if VNC is connecting to "localhost" when "localhost" in reality is
an SSH tunnel.
Is that the case with RealVNC 3.3.4 and above? What is the workaround?
Also, with RealVNC 3.3.4 can I setup specific vnc options on a connection
by connection basis? If so how? If not, how do I change the default
options in general?
Thanks, I use VNC many times, everyday.
