New user here on this list, glad to have it.
I have read all the posts, searched both google, and arcive.

o Remote is RH9
o Remote target is another win2k running VNC server

o using PUTTY tunneling via GUI (L5903 192.168.0.3:5903)
o using PUTTY CL (PLink -SSH -C -L 5903:192.168.0.3:5903 linux.remote)
o using VNC: localhost:3
o using VNC: 127.0.0.1:3
ERROR is either:
o C++ error notification (when using PUTTY GUI)
o VNC viewer drops, ie, disappears, with no visable result (when using
HELP!!! I am SO CLOSE. I can smell it, but something is wrong. I am using

Can anyone help?!!! I have done al the searching and testing I care for.
Well, at least until I get back to work tomarrow.
