    Ok here is the plan. I've been doing some searching and reading but haven't been able to find documentation on what I'm trying to do.

    I currently have a Fedora 9 box running and utilizing ssh and is accessible from the world. I'm trying to figure out how I can ssh to the fedora box (192.168.103.104) and have it redirect to the xp box (192.168.103.101) on port 3389 for rdp. This way I can ssh to the unix box remotely and then run rdp by like doing 127.0.0.1:3389 (from a host off the network that established the ssh connection).

    Do I need to have a ssh tunnel between the fedora and xbox to accomplish this?

    I was trying things like this http://www.engr.wisc.edu/computing/best/rdesktop-putty.html but its lacking how to setup the unix forwarding part.

    Any ideas or suggestions?

    TIA





    Nevermind... putty works fine without any further configuration

    I think all you need is in the third screenshot on that page.
