OK, a couple things. First, you need to point the browser to 5801 (if the VNC
server is running on display 1). I just tried this and I experienced the same
thing...the authentication page comes up in the browser, but it can't connect to
the VNC server. The problem (I think) is that the authencitation web server is
listening on 5801, but you also need to port forward the corresponding VNC
server port, 5901. I don't know how to do this from the command line, but you
can setup a config file (~/.ssh/config) that lists multiple ports to forward.
The format is like this:
LocalForward 5801 jarva:5801
LocalForward 5901 jarva:5901
Then, I just ssh'ed to the remote host and pointed the browser to
http://localhost:5801 and it worked.
