this isn't in OS X

Oops. If I had read your post more carefully I would have noticed that you mentioned the omission of the java client. Thanks for the clarification.

From *any* remote machine? I don't think so, as you need a machine with
an ssh client.

From a *nix machine (including MacOSX), create an alias in your .cshrc
file

alias tunnelvnc 'ssh -L 5900:your.home.machine:5900 your.home.machine'

and type "tunnelvnc" at the commandline before connecting with the vnc client to localhost:0
(ie, port 5900 on localhost).

P.S.: As a VNC client for MacOSX, I'd like to recommend VNCDimension.app.

Actually, because of its support for Tight Encoding, my favourite VNC client is now Chicken of the VNC.app. With the latest version of OSXvnc, this makes a world of difference in the usability.

In the same note, I also point out that you can couple SSH tunneling with firewalling external access to the VNC port(s) for extra security.

osxvnc.com a dead link now?

I just went to osxvnc.com, and it links to a cheezy search page at Trafficz.com .... Could this mean that there is no more OSX VNC server anymore?
