First question, I have VNC set up on my network as my primary remote
system, the only way I know of so far to set it up is set up port
forwarding on my router to forward to one specific IP address, so when I
connect over the internet I put in the public IP of my network and
connect to only that one computer, and if say I want to go to my desktop
instead of my server I have to change the setting in my router or do a
VNC inside a VNC which is, as I'm sure you know, UNGODLY SLOW. Is there
a way to set it up so I have a choice of which unit I want to VNC into?
What different ports can I use for VNC and how can I specify in the view
which PC I want to go to?
Second how can I make a VNC connection to a private network over the
internet more secure? I've been trying to read up on how to tunnel VNC
through SSH...and I think I get the jist of it...kind of like putting an
egg inside a steel tube for protection right. the egg (data) gets
transferred back and forth thru the tube (SSH of whatever protocol I
use) and noone can break (hack) it...am i'm understanding this
after that i'm kind of lost, how do I implement something like this??
anything i've been finding on SSH has been ported mainly towards Unix
and to to use it with Windows you have to jump through a thousand
hoops...is SSH my only option, what else can do with this?
