Chicken Problems with SSH
Authored by: jonwiley on Oct 15, '03 10:50:00PM

Thanks for your help. I tried what you said, but it still didn't work. But I figured out what I was doing wrong, thanks to your follow-up.

I tried plain VNC - w/o the SSH tunnel. Same behavior as before. I looked at OSXvnc's log and it showed the IP address of my client, or rather, what it thought the IP was.

It was the router's IP address. The iMac is the DMZ for the router, so every time it sent a response out to the client the router sent it back to itself.

I changed the iMac IP I had been using to the one my router assigned it. Worked like a charm. I suspect that when I connect from outside my LAN I'll use the router's IP.
