I have my PC in LAN at work (PC-WORK 192.168.1.x) and a SSH server with one interface looking at LAN (PC-SSH 192.168.1.xx) and WAN (

What I need is to get Remote Desktop to PC-WORK from home(PC-HOME).

How can I make it using Putty? What I made is I created a tunnel from my PC-WORK(192.168.1.x) to SSH server, so that it listens:

#lsof -i -nP | grep 3390
sshd  18598   root   11u  IPv4 592868957   TCP (LISTEN)

and redirects localhost:3333 to my PC:3389.

What's the next step?

You need to connect by Putty and forward local port 3333 to PC-WORK:3390: Connection->SSH->Tunnels; Source port - 3333; Destination - PC-WORK:3389. Press 'Add'

So, just connect to Start-Run-"mstsc /v:localhost:3333" – dchirikov Jan 8 '13 at 19:00
