I am developing a system in Windows.
This system will be installed on client machines.
Also, bundled with the system, is a VNC server which listen to the
standard port, 5900 on the client machine.
What I need is the following: suppose I am the administrator of such
system copies, and the client needs assistance, and suppose I cannot
access the client computer because it has a firewall.
The solution I thought was this: bundle a copy of plink with the
system, make a TCP SSH connection with a SSH server which has a VNC
Viewer and do a "reverse" connection, in such a way that from that
server I can access the client machine, even if it has a firewall.
The command I wrote for achieving this was:
plink -ssh -R 49687:localhost:5900 user@server
in order to connect to the client machine by simply typing in the
But I did the try and the connection was refused. What am i doing
Thank you very much.
