I am using PUTTY to create an SSH tunnel from one xp machine to another machine.  I can connect to the PC via PUTTY just fine, but once I try to RDC to localhost I run into problems.  Initially I was getting a message saying that another console could not be opened.  I modified the registry so that XP would allow multiple connections to it.  When I specify the fowarded port with localhost (3390 in this case) I get "the client could not connect to the remote computer".  I really not sure where to go next, or what I'm doing wrong.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks
