[Q] SSH/VNC over SSH tunnel
Hello, I need to connect to a linux machine behind secure network from my mobile phone. I do this from my other computers by connecting to an ssh server on that network (its port is open), and forwarding ports (for SSH and VNC) with Bitvise client, or the openssh client. I tried to do the same from my phone, and got various different results from different apps:
1. SSH Tunnel did not manage to create the tunnel at all - complete failure, just freezes.
2. SSH Autotunnel created the tunnel properly, but after that, I could not connect any SSH/VNC client using the forwarded ports on localhost (tried both "localhost" and "127.0.0.1" since my hosts file is a mess and I am sure that the ports are correct - I am getting "Connection Refused").
3. ConnectBot manages to connect to the SSH server, but disconnects upon entering the absolutely correct password.
Is it possible to install openssh on android? Also, the need for VNC arises from the fact that I normally just forward X over ssh to another linux box, but android doesn't use X server.
Could the issue be that android has some firewall that blocks my attempts? I haven't installed any of my own.
Thanks in advance for any help.
