I have tried using the following command with negative results.
      ssh -L 5902:localhost:5901 scorpio

      Permission denied (publickey).

I found a reference to this command at:
I cannot figure out how to correct whatever the problem is. I am attempting to connect to a FreeBSD-6.3 machine running 'TightVNC' from a WinXP machine. The connection works fine using a regular connection; however, I would prefer to use 'ssh' and limit the port to localhost for security.
