tightvnc: Connecting from Windows to Linux.

Make a putty session with the following entries
source port:5901
(replace with the remote Linux PCs internal IP)


Select fast compression
VNCServer: localhost:1

Connect to your Linux PC via the new Putty session, start VNC "/usr/bin/vncserver"

Start TightVNC with Fast Compression
for VNCServer use "localhost:1"

When you run vncserver for the first time it will prompt for 2 passwords, one is Read/Write on is Read only. When you run TightVNC from the Windows side once it connects it will ask for your password. You can also access your remote Linux PC using a web browser http://hostname:5801

open ports 5801 and 5901 on your router.
