how to create an SSH tunnel for a different service, VNC (port 5901). Add a grain of salt,
and don't forget NAT of the ports you're using:
<quote>If you want more security, because you will be working over the public
internet, you can avoid opening up port 5901 in your firewall and/or
router, and instead use ssh (port 22). Then from your Solaris system,
use ssh and specify a tunnel for port 5901 that will then allow your
Solaris VNC client to use the secure ssh tunnel.
ssh -f -C -N -L 5901:127.0.0.1:5901 username@...
for the forwarding host you need to use the internal
If you use the external IP then SSH tries to talk to your firewall.
ssh 188.8.131.52 -l username -C -L 5902:192.168.1.100:5901

windows user :) The URLs mentioned earlier should prove helpful.
