How do I set up this environment variable on my notebook. Would I modify my
.bash_profile file, and is the format of the added line:
VNC_VIA_CMD=/usr/bin/ssh -p 7722 -f -L "$L":"$H":"$R" "$G" sleep 20
You could actually do this a little bit easier, by defining a user ssh
config file in ~/.ssh
You could do something similar to:
User backupuser #default username
Port 2222 # Use this port instead of 22.
This simplified my ssh commands, not having to include the -p ____
But I could not get vncviewer working. For the command:
vncviewer gate.foo.com:5902 -via gate.foo.com

CConn: connected to host localhost port 5599
channel 3: open failed: connect failed: Connection refused
main: End of stream
Where did port 5599 come from?
So I kind of gave up, I set up a SSH port forwarding and ran through that.
All this to make a change to my firewall rules. My firewall would not
accept an external admin connection, so I had to get an internal Firefox
client running on this system. Hop, Hop, Hop....
