I need to use OpenGL on a remote Win 10 computer so can't use RDP. I also need a secure connection so VNC over SSH looks like a good solution.
So far I've installed and configured OpenSSH and TightVNC servers on the remote Windows computer. I've confirmed TightVNC server is listening on port 5900.
I then followed this guide to configure PuTTy with port tunneling.
I've also set
AllowTcpForwarding yes in
sshd_config on the remote computer.
I can successfully connect/login to the remote Windows computer using PuTTy with tunneling setup for port 5900.
But when I try to connect to 127.0.0.1::5900 or localhost:5900 in the TightVNC viewer it fails to connect giving "Connection has been gracefully closed" error.
What am I missing?
