Hi again guys

recently, but before it was LTS, I moved along to Lucid on my home desktop. I used to enjoy open remote access to my workplace with simple VNC.

More lately there's been a little paranoia, or security consciousness, and so I am now aiming to load my key, ssh in, and forward the port locally so that I can run xtightvncviewer and carry on as normal.

Except it doesn't - connection to server is refused and yet will work for a colleague.

Are there Lucid issues I'm unaware of?

Oh yeah, and hopefully this is not relevant, but for my sins I went for the 64 bit (just because I could!).
