comment Configuring ssh fingerprints on dns to replace known_hosts fails
Despite the fact that OS X (10.9) now includes a 6.X version of OpenSSH, SSHFP still doesn't work because of a broken OS X implementation as reported by GitHub. Replacement with a different OpenSSH client such as one from MacPorts is the only solution currently.

Sorry, but it looks like you didn't read my full posting above. I tested using Fully Qualified Domain Names (FQDN) and that was not the issue.

comment Remote support: routing RDP over ssh tunnel?
If you're having trouble connecting, then check each part of the tunnel. From the desktop, use telnet localhost 5900; to connect to the VNC port and confirm that a connection can be made. From the server, use telnet localhost 1234; and confirm the connection. Lastly, from the laptop use telnet localhost 5900;. If each segment works, then you should be able to VNC to the localhost of the laptop.

Confirm whether VNC is listening on port 5900 or 5901 since this makes a big difference. Use lsof -Pi4; or netstat -lanpt; to check this. Also, confirm that your ssh settings allow port forwarding. Check the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file on the server and make sure that AllowTcpForwarding yes and PermitTunnel yes. Restart your ssh server if you changed the config file.

If you want to have a shell and to forward ports over a tunnel on the same connection, then remove the -fN from the command. Usually I just open a second connection instead, since closing the shell will close your port forwarding tunnel.
