>From the original post, the scenrio is from a remote web browser to the
WinVNC server, by way of SSH.

AS per:

Internet Explorer  \
Netscape Navigator  \________________>> SSH  >> WinVNC   (and back again)
Opera               /


I have no idea where SSH client would fit in.

Unless I misunderstand what you're saying, it has to happen from the client
side.  If you've already connected to the server directly with VNC, you've
got an unencrypted connection across the network, and SSH won't help you.

It works like this:

VNC viewer --> SSH client ======================> SSH server --> VNC server
-------------------------                         -------------------------
  Client computer                                   Server computer

-- Unencrypted loopback connection
== Encrypted network connection
