    Creating SSH Tunnel between Mac and Linux


    I'm dyin' here, and you cats are my last hope:

    I've been setting up an old Vaio PC to be a file server in my house, using the directions found here: bit-tech.net | Build your own server

    I've been pretty successful the whole way through...with one glaring error: I can't seem to successfully create an SSH Tunnel and subsequently get VNC to run. I blame much of this on the fact that the directions I'm using offer a Windows example for the client computer, whereas, in my situation, I need something a little more relevant for what should be done with Apple's OS X.

    My guess is I need to use some combination of the Terminal and Chicken of the VNC, but I have no idea how to proceed from there.

    Any chance you can help?

    Hmmm, ssh forwarding of VNC ports is pretty straightforward - but there will be some differences based on the distro you're using. So which distribution are you running?

    Hey there, I'm using Xubuntu for the server.

    I've followed all of the directions in that tutorial to a T, with the only exception that I've been able to figure out what to do for Macs everytime they mention something about PCs.
