I don't know if it would help you or not, but you might try running

ssh -L 3700:ltspserver:5900 ltspserver

from the remote site to your ltsp server (ltspserver), and then on the remote 
client run vncviewer and point it at localhost:3700.  This will run your vnc 
traffic through the SSH tunnel created in the first step.  Using sshvnc does all 
this for you automatically, as others have pointed out.  But trying this might 
tell you something about where your problem is depending on whether it works or not.
