Re: X Server / Tightvnc tunnells

If you have sshd running on kron, do the following (assuming you want VNC traffic and that it's running on 5900):
1. create a user on it which has port forwarding privileges
2. on grue do: ssh -R 1234:localhost:5900 kron
3. on smeg do: ssh -L 5900:localhost:1234 kron
4. now use your vnc client on smeg and connect to localhost::5900 (yes, you need double columns)
OK this is a port tunnelling thing I'm not seeing how to fix... thanks in advance for taking a gander.

I have two machines behind seperate firewalls, and a third server that both can access.

"grue" and "smeg" are behind different firewalls, and i need to see grue from smeg using a gui type thing. I was trying to do tightvnc and now i'm looking at ssh -Y .

In order to ssh to grue I had to do sit at the computer physically and forward port 22 on it to some arbitrary port on "kron" (my server). Then from smeg I ssh to kronos, then i ssh with -p ??? where the ??? is my arbitrary port. That works lovely.

But now I can't seem to figure out how to forward the ports so i can do tightvnc... Perhaps someone can give me some step by step on what I need to do to get the correct ports forwarded and then how to access those ports so I can get to grue from smeg through kron.

thanks guys I really appreciate it.
