If you set-up an SSH tunnel using say putty to tunnel ports 5901 from the windows machine to the VNC server then in VNC you have to use 127.0.0.1:5901 as the address to connect to, not including the port number will not work...
on the linux computer your right linux dose understand what local host is windoze dose not
(I can't understand how networking works at all on windoze with this kind of bug )
when that fails use the IP address of the local windows computer as the forward to address
maybe it's been fixed by now but the only forward to address
I could get to work on windows was the IP address of the windows computer forwarding from linux to windoze
on windows ping 127.0.0.1 returns host not found
putty returns the same thing
in short windoze can't find it's own ass with both hands
I just ran a ping 127.0.0.1 on a vis-stool computer it worked
it didn't work on XP
so maybe putty can use 127.0.0.1 on vis-stool
