I'm having trouble forwarding a vnc session over ssh (putty).
Maybe someone here can help. I've googled about and read some howto's and think I have my setup right.
I have a debian etch server at my house and I want to see the desktop. I can connect to my server with ssh.
I have verified my desktop is up and running with fluxbox. I've installed tightvncserver and started it up
New 'X' desktop is lodi:1
Starting applications specified in /home/eddie/.vnc/xstartup
Log file is /home/eddie/.vnc/lodi:1.log
when I configured forwarding for putty I went to Connection/ssh/tunnels and under source port I put 5901 and destination I put localhost:5900 and then saved the new configuration. I reconnected with my new tunnels setup and logged in. I then fired up my tightvnc client and tried to connect to 'localhost:1' but it never connects!
The weird thing is that I don't get a 'failed to connect to server' error from putty like I would normally due to a misconfiguration.
