Thanks to all who offered help - I've now managed to get vnc running
over shh.

Once I'd worked out how to force vnc to start on a given screen:

% vncserver :1

I managed to get the windows ssh program to forward ports 5801 and 5901
from my client via ssh - then, all I had to do was put 'localhost:1' in
the client window (it didn't seem to work when I actually put
'my_hostname:1') or http://localhost:5801/ into Netscape - and away I

There was a slight drop in performance - but it's still useable.


P.S. I'm still trying to work out how I can block people from accessing
the server - if anyone has any ideas...
