Hey guys had a SSH forward question so here goes...
I have 2 computers on my lan one of them is a server and the other is my
Now I have port forwarding setup on my crappy linksys router so 22 is
pointing to my Server (192.168.1.103)
My question is this...
I would like to tightVNC to my Desktop (192.168.1.104) forwarding it
through SSH. Now from what I understand If my router was pointing to my
desktop this would not be a problem at all. All I would have to do is
SSH to my IP while forwarding 22 to 5900. However I cant do it this way
since 22 is pointing to my server. So I figured I would ssh into my
server and issue a command such as ssh 192.168.1.103
-L22:192.168.1.104:5900 however once im in and I run vncview it
obivoiusly can be displayed becuase Im not running X on the server. Am
I way off here? Is there a way to do this? Will I need to forward 22 on
my router to the desktop as well as server? Is there a way to connect to
my server thats not running X and some how vnc into my desktop?
On the remote machines I'd be useing PuTTY for windows and SSH on Linux
box's. Prehaps someone can give me a step by step guide?
