I can connect to my private work network using Putty with the following settings:
- Hostname: login.example.com
- Port: 502
- SSH Forwarded Ports: D8888
This opens an SSH socks proxy which allows me to access internal servers. I again use Putty to connect to the internal Ubuntu server using the socks proxy above.
Now I want to get the server GUI using VNC, but I am unable to connect with the socks proxy. I tried forwarding the ports, but since I am newbie to this, I may have done it incorrectly. So how can I run VNC from my Windows machine to access the remote VNC server?
This article did not help me to connect using
vncserver. RDP isn't working, either. The VNC session is on a different server accessible only from login.example.com as a socks proxy.
Note: I am able to SSH to the internal servers using the configuration above with the login.example.com as socks proxy in Putty.
