Hi, I'm trying to open a vnc session using ssh. I've started the vncserver on the remote machine. I then run the command:
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org -L 5901:localhost:5905
But then I get this...
bind: Address already in use
channel_setup_fwd_listener: cannot listen to port: 5901
Could not request local forwarding.

Have a lot of fun...
I suspect this is a firewall issue and it't not allowing port 5901 to be forwarded thru the ssh tunnel. Has anyone seen this before or has an idea what might be going on.
