    I need to access a computer (Mac) at work over VNC, through another Mac at my house. I can connect with a PC using an SSH tunnel in Putty, but I can't figure out how to use a tunnel in Terminal (the Mac command line).

    Here's what I've tried from the Mac terminal at home:

    ssh -L 5905:192.168.2.169:5905 username@workdomain.com


    Where...5905 is the local port

    192.168.2.169:5905 is the IP address and port of the computer I'm trying to connect to with VNC

    And username@workdomain.com is the address of the SSH server in the office I'm trying to tunnel through.

    This didn't work. Can someone please give me a nudge in the right direction to make this work?

    Thanks!

    I figured it out...

    ssh root@sshserverip -N -L 5902:192.168.2.118:5902
