Might need to install some "cisco connect" stuff from here: (I did because Wes told me to, not sure if it made a difference) (not needed anymore, see

ssh -C -N -q -K -L 5902:localhost:5902 &
USERNAME = your user name

on mac, open a generic Finder window then type "command-k" to open up vnc connection (non-mac, get your own vnc client i suppose)

the server you connect to is : vnc://localhost:5902

it asks for a password which is xxxxxxsmc, where xxxxxx is the usual docdb password

(tell shifters not to touch the GUI while you're using it)
