vncviewer is not getting connected
I am creating tunnel using this method: ssh firstname.lastname@example.org -L 61000:localhost:5901 .but vncviewer says connection refused by computer. I suddenly get connected but most of the time it does not work for me.
before creating tunnel I am checking the display number and applying. Can anyone please help me?
Is there any particular reason you want to use port
61000 for your local port? The VNC Setup Guide suggests using
5901 and that's the one I've had success with in the past.
This article titled SSH Local and Remote Port Forwarding with VNC gives a few different examples using port
6999, however, I wasn't able to get that to work either.
And finally, according to this article titled VNC Port Forwarding: Everything Important You Need To Know, you may need to configure your router settings.
I hope this helps!
