Starting applications specified in /home/newellz2/.vnc/xstartup.turbovnc
(Enabling VirtualGL)
Log file is /home/newellz2/.vnc/banyan:2.log

Take note of this line:

Desktop 'TurboVNC: banyan:2 (newellz2)' started on display banyan:2

The :2 is the port. Typically its 5900 + n. So in this case it's 5900 +2 = 5902

Port bind 590# with ssh:

ssh -L 5902:localhost:5902 newellz2@banyan.cse.unr.edu
