I have been using VNC through SSH (Putty GUI) for a while to access my
home computer (Server) from work.

Recently I changed internet service and now I can log into SSH from
Putty but can't establish a vnc connection. Here is my configuration:

On putty in the SSH Tunnels tab I have setup up:

Source Port: 5905
Destination: xx.xxx.xxx.xxx:5900 (Port 5900 is blocked at my work)
with local tab checked. So the config is:

L5905 xx.xxx.xxx.xxx:5900

After establishing connection to my home through Putty I open up VNC

On VNC I type

localhost:5
also tried localhost:5905

The error message I am getting is :

"Loopback connections disabled"

Any Ideas, what I am doing wrong?

Thanks
