Here is my situation. I have a imac G5 that I would like to use to remotely connect to my 78 year old fathers imac G4 for the purpose of helping him learn to use his computer. I have OSXvnc(server) and COTvnc(client) and would like to tunnel VNC through SSH. I also have a D-Link 604 router (NAT firewall)
I have scoured the net for information on how to accomplish this and have found a lot of information. Too much for me to digest really. I think I probably have gathered all of the “puzzle pieces” but I have not been able to get it all together in a functional way. I should also mention, I have downloaded a neat piece of software called SSHTunnelManager. It is designed to make the port assignment/forwarding process easier to handle. My real problem is that I am to novice to understand all the terminology I think.
Can you please give me specific instructions on how to use OSXvnc to reverse connect (Dad doesn’t have static IP) to my Dads computer tunnelling through SSH for security. I am really at a loss and my Dad is in real need of assistance. Thank you so much.
