[ale] VNC over SSH2

ssh2 8080: sangell at mydynamicdns.dyndns.org

I am using 1024 bit RSA key for tunnel and 1024 bit DSA key authentication
(if memory serves)

Once SSH connects I open web browser and point to http://localhost:8080

I get the Authentication page so VNC and SSH are working but the
authentication fails.

I have read the FAQ at VNC website, but not a lot of detail, I also have
O'Reilly SSH The Secure Shell but it only has a single paragraph about VNC

Hmmm. I do this almost every day, w/o problems, so I know it
works. Never had this particular problem. You're connecting vnc to
your localhost port, correct? Have you reviewed the FAQ for VNC over
SSH (I'm guessing yes, but it never hurts to ask...):


What params are you giving ssh when you make the connection (to forward
the ports)?
