This document makes a few assumptions. Pieces of information marked like <this> are meant to be replaced with your specific information. For example: you would replace <HOSTNAME> with the appropriate host name depending on which host you have been assigned to use. The same goes for <USERNAME> and <VNC Session Number>.
The first step is to launch SecureCRT. If you are not presented with the "Connect" window (see Figure 1): select the "File" menu and then "Connect". See figure 2.
From the "Connect" window (figure 1) click the "New Session" button (third from the left. See figure 1). A window similar to figure 3 should open.
Start by entering the following information:
Then click "Port Forwarding" under "Category". The window should change to reflect this selection and should be similar to figure 4.
Click the "Add" button. A window similar to figure 5 will open.
To create the tunnel, you must enter the requested information in the following manner:
Your VNC session should be two digits for this purpose. As we see in figure 3: if your VNC session number is 1 you would enter 5901 for both Local and Remote port.
When you have finished: click the "Ok" button. The new session window will update to reflect your changes. It should appear similar to figure 6.
Click the "Ok" button to complete the addition of the new session. To use the session you have created: double-click the session name. Authenticate as usual.
The last step is to start your VNC client. When prompted for hostname: use localhost:<VNC Session Number> (see figure 6)rather than <HOSTNAME>:<VNC Session Number>.
