This may seem like a dumb question, but I would really like to know. On my local network I'm very happy using vnc, but whenever I travel away from my own network I use ssh. Now I've downloaded software that allows me to tunnel vnc through ssh in a nice and friendly gui. The software is called ssvnc.
Anyway my question is does all the secure connections happen on the viewer's side or should I set up extra "security" on the computer running vncserver?
I'm really not sure if I'm asking this question right, so before it becomes a long thread where no one is answering my question let me try to rephrase it.
On the client maching it goes something like "ssh -L port:server:5901 email@example.com
". Something like that. Normally on the server one would have ssh running and vnc server would be somthing like this: vncserver -geometry 800x600 :1. Are these commands all that is needed to make a secure connection or should I be trying to connect vncserver with ssh on the server machine?
I hope the question makes sense, sorry if it doesn't.
