Linux: VNC from Linux machine

This document describes how to vnc to a best-tux.cae.wisc.edu Linux lab machine from another Linux machine.

For security reasons, CAE only provides VNC access to its best-tux.cae.wisc.edu Linux lab machines via tunneled SSH.

To access it with SSH tunnels automatically setup for you, use the following command (provided by the xtightvncviewer package amongst others):

# vncviewer -via best-tux.cae.wisc.edu localhost:73

See the article referenced below for the full set of alternative display ports.
