This document describes how to set up WinVNC to run over ssh under so that you can securely control a Windows NT machine over the network.
These instructions assume that you are using WinVNC 3.3.3r9. They may not work with other versions.
On the server machine,
regedit, add the
AllowLoopbackset to 1 to
LoopbackOnlyset to 1 to
net start winvnc
On the server, install and run sshd. Next, make sure you're running sshd and WinVNC on the server machine.
Then, once sshd and WinVNC are running on the server, go the the client machine (which is not the same machine as the server):
ssh -L 590x:localhost:5900 -l username servermachine
ssh -L 5901:localhost:5900 -l username servermachine
Note: if you want to use the Java browser method, you can probably do it by changing the 59 to 58 in the port numbers above, but I am not sure.
