SSH Tunnel Linux<->Win

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


I want to access my WinXP machine at home from my Linux workstation at
work. Because of some restrictive firewalls and configurations I only
have a Linux server to the internet...

[workstation] -> ssh -> Linux Gateway -> ssh -> Windows

... So I thought I could make a ssh connection over the Linux gateway to
a vnc server on Windows.

I used "ssh -L 5900:<ip of windows>:5900 user@linuxworkstation" to make
the tunnel.

Is that everything I need? I tried that configuration at home and it
worked, but well I can connect directly too.

I thought that I need a second part on the windows side too, something
like a ssh server. So that I establish the connection between a Linux ssh
client and a Windows ssh server.

I have cygwin and ssh installed, so I could setup something like that.
