comment Ssh port forwarding with Remote Desktop timing out
Thought of something: newer remote desktop servers can use UDP (see blogs.msdn.com/b/rds/archive/2013/04/09/…). I don't think the ssh proxy I am using tunnels UDP. On the other hand, I don't think the server I am trying to connect to uses UDP, though.

comment Ssh port forwarding with Remote Desktop timing out
I have used and like the LogMeIn service and their ilk. One problem with services like this is that the user experience is not as good as Remote Desktop: the response is slower and the video is not as smooth. Another, more important, issue is our security department has vetted and allowed remote access via RDP but not with a service like LogMeIn.

Yes, AllowTcpForwarding is allowed (i.e., there is no explicit AllowTcpForwarding directive in the config file and forwarding is allowed by default). Also, other users have successfully used sshd on GATEWAY to forward other services (e.g., ssh and mysql). I will add the configuration to my question in case that helps.

comment Google Docs: How to backup periodically?
I can second that this: it is working well for me. It even preserves the folder structure. Note that if you have two-factor authentication turned on for your Google account, you will need to generate an application-specific password as GDocBackup (currently) cannot handle two-factor authentication.

comment Remote Desktop “security details” icon
If the remote machine you are connecting to is in a Windows domain and the domain is using the Kerberos protocol, then the domain can authenticate that the machine you actually connect to is the correct machine. For a description of who this works, see Section 4 kerberos.org/software/tutorial.html or Chapter 3 of "Kerberos: The Definitive Guide" by Jason Garman.

comment Windows 7 name resolution looking at wrong domain
The computers full name is "DAISY.mycompany.com". Ah. That fixed it. The setting was under that System properties "Primary DNS suffix of this computer".
