How to tunnel vmware over ssh

Make sure that vmware works on the local network, and install the vmware software on the remote machine.

To create the tunnel, run a command like ssh -N -L9021:localhost:902 vmware-server, then enter localhost:9021 in the vmware "connect to host" dialog. The tunnel will remain available until the ssh connection is closed.
