VNC and SSH tunneling

I'm running the VNC server on a Solaris 8 box with OpenSSH.
Normally I use vncviewer.exe (Windows NT/98) forwarded through an SSH
connection (PuTTY) . this works fine. I start the server with -localhost
(port 5900 is forwarded locally)
What I'd like to do is start the vncviewer in listen mode and make a server
initiated connection tunnelled through a remotely forwarded port.
The reverse connections work fine without the SSH tunnel, but I've had
absolutely no success in opening a reverse connection to vncviewer through a
remote port forward.
Does anyone have experience of this, what remote ports (5500? 5900?) do I
need to forward and where do I forward them to (localhost? 127.0.0.1?
ipaddress?) are there any configs that I need to take care of in OpenSSH or
