Scratch my previous response... I do NOT think it is working. I have VNC
running on my RedHat box at home. I have verified that it *is* running
currently (ps aux | grep vnc) and when I try to telnet to the localhost:5901
it doesn't work. I don't get the RFB.

Okay, the best way to prove that the tcp/ip setup is working is to
execute the following command
telnet ip-address 5900
to do this test, use putty to setup your tunnel, then do the telnet
command from a dos box. If you get a line with RFB, then the problem is
not tunneling, nor port numbers...
But if you donot get the RFB line then the problem is at the tcp/ip

Real/Vnc will not work any better. TightVnc works fine.
