VNC not connecting over SSH tunnel
I'm not having this problem on all machines. I can connect to every
workstation in a remote office using:
ssh -L 5902:<remote workstation's local IP>:5900 <remote router's
then in another terminal:
xtightvncviewer -encodings "tight" localhost:5902
However, there is one workstation that I get
xtightvncviewer: VNC server closed connection
when I try to connect.
The ssh session also shows this message:
channel 3: open failed: connect failed: No route to host
Indeed, I can't even ping it from the remote ssh server.
However, when I went to the office and tried to connect using my laptop,
connected into the local network, I was able to connect normally.
Moreover, I can logout and log back in from the workstation so the VNC
server is running as a service
It's not a machine "suspend mode" thing either. I can't connect even
when the computer is being used.
The remote workstations are running Windows 7.
