OK, here’s the deal. We have a dedicated computer running Mac OS X 10.3 that does a variety of services including ssh, vnc and running (via Virtual PC) UPS Worldship.
What I want to do is have two Clients be authorized and set up so that they both are able to ssh tunnel into this machine, use vnc and run UPS Worldship in Virtual PC in the same desktop.
I thought I could just authorize them each to share a desktop in COTvnc and permit client sharing in OSXvnc. And, before using ssh tunneling this worked great.
The problem is the ssh. It appears the tunnels get confused if both clients try to tunnel into 5900. It keeps shutting down when both are connected.
So, I thought, I would have each client tunnel into OSXvnc and connect using separate ports, specifying in the tunnel that Client A’s vnc port will go to 5906 for Client B’s to 5908.
The problem that I’m having is that, for whatever reason, OSXvnc will only let one client connect at a time on these ports when what I want it to do is let Client A connect to the same desktop on port 5906 that Client B is connected to on port 5908.
Is this possible? For now, I am only ssh tunneling one client.
