Hey Brenda,

Thanks for your reply.

I will try to answer your questions the best I can.

We are on SecureCRT 8.5.3 running on Windows 10.

Our server is running a VNC service on a port 5901 to 5909. The user chooses which port they would like to use. The user then would have to edit their SecureCRT session to forward that port to their local box. We like to do this for two reasons. One, so that the vnc traffic is encrypted. Second, we have a firewall between the server and client that allows only port 22. When the service is running and the port forwarded the user will start a vnc client on their workstation and point it to the local port that is created by the ssh tunnel.

I was hoping to have a script that would ask the user for a port number and create a session in SecuresCRT and configure the forwarded port. Our users are remote and not very tech savvy. I'm hoping to make the process as easy as I can for them.

I hope this clears things up.

Thanks,

Kent
