Source for more info on ssh tunnels
Authored by: jmacak on Nov 08, '05 08:27:13AM
Here's a source for a movie (fairly lengthy - 20MB) about how "to use your Mac from any PC over the Internet." The page also includes links to other resources. The author uses PuTTY and other ssh utilities for Windows, OSXvnc, etc. and demonstrates a thorough step-by-step set-up process.

This is a terrific tutorial. It worked flawlessly for me.

My only issue is that VNC doesn't seem to work when you logout the Mac user or do a Fast User switch. VNC closes. When I restart it, I get:
Connection failed - error reading Protocol Version. Possible causes - you've forgotten to select a DSMPlugin and the server uses a DSMPlugin...

Did anyone else hit this and manage to overcome?
