I have setup ssh tunnel from a linux workstation to a linux server to use secure VNC. It works so far good, the only problem is that it is a bit slow. I would like to ask you for suggestion on optimizing the the tunnel and/or the vnc server. Both computers have enough cpu power and very fast internet connections, so it would not be a problem if the optimization includes high cpu usage or high broadband usage...
here are my configs:
VNC server is started with the following options:
tightvncserver -geometry 800x600 -depth 15 :1
xsetroot -solid grey
x-terminal-emulator -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
the ssh tunnel gets started from the workstation with the following options:
ssh -f -N -L 5901:localhost:5901 username@server
