security for VNC
Authored by: zedwards on May 03, '01 05:02:21PM

I am surprised how easy it is to get access to my computer remotely. Does anyone know how secure the password that is being sent is via vnc? Is it encrypted in anyway? I would like to leave the server on all the time. Any suggestions?

VNC via SSH tunnel...

There's a thread on MacNN that talks about VNC, and there's an example of how to use SSH to tunnel (securely) to VNC. I can't say that I admit to knowing how it works, but check the thread yourself and see if it makes sense -- I'll probably experiment with it a bit this weekend. -rob.
