[OpenIndiana-discuss] Installing a Unbuntu Guest Under KVM

Ok, so I changed the -vnc to so use an outside world accessible ip:
-vnc <outside world ip>:01
And now I connect. So it looks like it was ssh. But oddly, when I use
netcat to create a server, I can tunnel to it just fine:
netcat -l localhost 5901
^ works fine with ssh tunnel.
This moves me forward, but I really want to know why I can connect
with ssh? Any ideas?
