You can use ssh to create a tunnel for your vnc connection:

1. ssh -L 3700:ltspserver:5900 ssh_host_that_you_connect_to

Do the above from your remote machine; that is, if you're doing this from home, 
run the above command on your home machine.  You'll get prompted for your 
password and it will seem like a regular ssh session.

2.  vncviewer localhost:3700

Do this also on your remote/home machine.  Step 1 sets up a tunnel from port 
3700 on your local machine to port 5900 on the remote machine.  VNC listens on 
port 5900 by default, so if you're using a different port, adjust the number 
accordingly.  When you point the vncviewer at port 3700 on the local machine, 
the connection is sent over ssh to port 5900 on the remote server, in this case, 
to the LTSP server where the vnc daemon is listening.
