Help with error
Authored by: chko on Mar 03, '05 11:23:33PM
When I do this I get an error, and then of course the tunnel doesn't work.
In the terminal I type:
ssh -R 5900: user@ipaddress
The if I do:
grep sshd /var/log/system.log
I get:
... localhost sshd[388]: error: bind: Address already in use

I'm I missing something? (Obviously I am!) Help.

Found the error

The problem was I had a VNC server running on my machine using port 5900. Once I killed that, and reestablished the SSH tunnel from the "other" computer things worked fine.
