Hello CCC,

I have Ubuntu 5.15 up and running in the OCI cloud. I installed X11 & tigervnc. I can unable to VNC connect to the Ubuntu server using an ssh tunnel & user certificate. I found this link for Oracle Linux:

https://support.oracle.com/epmos/faces/DocumentDisplay?_afrLoop=225876025850370&parent=EXTERNAL_SEARCH&sourceId=HOWTO&id=2456478.1&_afrWindowMode=0&_adf.ctrl-state=qcw15u80s_4

I can create the ssh tunnel fine from Windows. However, when I try to connect to using tigervnc, I get a message, server dropped your connection attempt. The Ubuntu firewall is disabled for the moment. Running ss on Ubuntu shows Ubuntu listening on port 5902. On Windows, I am connecting to Linux using "localhost:5902". I am not sure why this is not working. It should be. Can you please help?

Howdy, Stranger!
