Necessary and sufficient ssh port forwarding
Authored by: osxpounder on Nov 26, '07 09:17:09PM

So what's the proper command to create a secure tunnel for using a VNC connection to remotely control my Mac?

I had successful connections using the following command:

ssh -N -f -L 5999:127.0.0.1:5900 user@remoteMac

after authentication, launch Chicken of the VNC (or your preferred VNC viewer) and use localhost:5999 as destination server.
