CotVNC over SSH - Fugu

         I'm trying to access VNC into my server through an SSH tunnel.  I'm using Fugu to create the SSH tunnel.

         I have enabled Appl Remote Desktop and VNC on the server, and I can connect to the server regularly, over 5900.

         I'm using Fugu to create the SSH tunnel, tunneling  local port 1024 to remote port 5900.  The tunnel connects.

         However, when I try to use CotVNC to connect, I get a "Connection Terminated The server closed the connection" error message.

         I am using the following settings:
         Host: localhost:1024
         Display: 0

         Any suggestions?

      I bet your remote port says localhost:5900.  Try changing it to

      Don't ask me why.
