Hi Everyone,

I know this is probably basic stuff, but I'll need someone to walk me

Destination Port: 5900
Comp Name: LocalHost Listen Port: 5901 Host: Desination
Port: 5901

Why am I getting that message? Are my tunnels not set up correctly?
I try to connect using: localhost:1

Thanks for any help and walking me through the setup.
