I followed this vcast: http://howto.diveintomark.org/remote-mac/

Enabled remote login on the mac.

ssh-keygen -t to create keys.

Updated the /etc/sshd_config file to portForwarding yes and usePAM no.

Created the authorized_keys file in the .ssh directory and added a public key.

Set the port forwarding on my Verizon dsl modem to my mac's ip address.

Set up a dynamic dns for the mac. Ping successful.

In putty, I pointed to the private key file, and in ssh-tunnels, added a forwarded port to localhost:5900.

Putty gives me "Network error: connection refused"

I disabled the router firewall, and the mac firewall is disabled for remote login - no good.

Any clues? Thanks in advance.

A lot of so-called ISPs, especially the telcos and cablecos, block inbound ports that were not opened by outbound requests to enforce ToS restrictions (thus they are not true ISPs in my book). You could be facing that problem.

Yeah, you're right. I got the remoting to work locally. Had to adjust the authentication options to eventually get it working. I'm in New York City - what alternatives to Verizon would I have other than Time Warner cable? I figure TWC probably would pose the same problem.
