VNC Tunneling problems through SSH
Date: 24 Mar 2004 15:13:36 -0800
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:
After establishing connection to my home through Putty I open up VNC
On VNC I type
also tried localhost:5905
The error message I am getting is :
"Loopback connections disabled"
Any Ideas, what I am doing wrong?
