[PLUG] Remotely viewing Windows VNC from Ubuntu


I can't seem to get a connection for troubleshooting a remote Windows box.

Windows server 2003, with RealVNC server,  or TightVNC server installed.

I've tried using the Ubuntu packages

But all connections are rejected for Auth error.  Even  if I disable
the password required on the VNC server.

With gvncviewer on Ubuntu

The auth is fine, but the remote server immediatly disconnects.

Does anyone have a working configuration ?

I need to eventually tunnel this over ssh to a remote site.
