comment vnc connection working with PuTTY but not with command line
I think its because the first computer you log into then connects you directly to markinch bypassing it from further communication to reduce unecessary communication overhead. (?) and by the time you put the vnc client on you are already connected directly to markinch. (?)

comment vnc connection working with PuTTY but not with command line
