Problem creating SSH tunnel on linux

Linux Commands Initial Server Setup

Hello,

I’m following this DigitalOcean guide to configure VNC on Ubuntu.

Everything works fine up to step 3. When I try to create an SSH connection on my local computer using ssh -L 5901:127.0.0.1:5901 -C -N -l sammy your_server_ip in my terminal, nothing happens Screenshot.

Any ideas?
Thanks

Seems the tunnel was already up and running, installed vncviewer and ran vncviewer localhost:5901
