Vncviewer will do the grunge work of setting up the ssh tunnel
for you if you use the -via option:
vncviewer -via ltspserver localhost
(the ssh server specified doesn't have to be the same as the
vnc target as long as it can reach it).  Be sure you are using
the correct name for the outside interface of the ssh server
and the name or IP used on the inside for the vncserver if they
are different.
