Using VNC through a Putty SSH tunnel

Get the latest version of putty (0.59b works).

Step 2.:
Get the Ultra VNC viewer from here http://ultravnc.sourceforge.net/.

Step 3.:
Run putty and setup an SSH connection and tunnel to the VNC server.

In this example we have setup an ssh connection to YOUR_IP_ADDRESS_HERE and given
it the session name BBR .

Finally set up a tunnel from port 5900 to your computer to port 5900 on
the VNC server. (as shown below)

Now you must save the session otherwise you'll need to do it all again
next time you make a connection.

Open the session and make a connection to the SSH server.

Step 4.:
Run the Ultra VNC viewer and make a connection to localhost:5900.

You should have a login prompt from the VNC server machine now.
