    VNC and ssh port forwarding not working ...

      Hi All,

      has VNC on solaris 11 changed ?

      on opensolaris, i used to connect to the VNC server,
      using local port forwarding:

      ssh -L 5901:localhost:5901 user@remote_server
      and vnc connecting to localhost:1

      when i do the same, with the solaris 11 (11/11) server,
      the vnc client (RealVNC client) on mac/osx just
      shows a popup "connecting to localhost:1" ...

      ssh local port forwarding is working, the following works:

      ssh -L 9001:localhost:22 user@remote_server
      ssh -p 9001

      puts me in a ssh session on the remote server.

      are there some new additional settings for vnc on solaris 11?

      I noticed that on solaris 11, the Xvnc used is:

      Xvnc TigerVNC 1.0.90
