    Currently I can use any computer with PuTTY to open an SSH tunnel so I can access my computer using VNC.

    Now I trying to do the same with my Touchpad. I easily connect via SSH with Dropbear or VNC with mVNC inside my network but can't figure out tunneling with Dropbear so I can access over the Internet. I think its too risky to open VNC ports on the firewall, that's why I would like SSH tunneling.

    Anyone out there with more experience than me?

    You need to set up ssh tunneling. basically you would forward a port from inside your network through your ssh connection to your touchpad.

    I am not totally sure how dropbear ssh does that but I know you can do it with openssh.

    it will be something like: ssh -L 5900:localhost:5900 192.168.1.100

    The following site should give you a better explanation and examples. SSH Tunneling Explained | Source Open

    hope this helps

    Thanks, that was key. Here is the exact connect string I used in case this helps someone else:

    ssh -L 5901:YourInternalipAddress:5901: -l username YourPublicipAddress
