Listening viewer over an SSH tunnel

I am trying to set up a system for supporting a client who has a
firewall that wil not accept incoming connections.
So, from one of the client's pc's I set up an SSH tunnel back to my home
Linux server. I can VNC now from the client pc to a windows box on my
home network using "localhost" as the destination IP address. However I
need to go the other way...
The same client PC is also running a VNC server, so I run a listening
viewer on the same windows box on my home network. I choose "Add new
client" on the client pc and add "localhost" as the address, and...
nothing happens on my home PC.
So, I test my home pc by using a listening viewer on my home pc, and
running a vnc server on my laptop. This works fine...
Sorry if this a bit confusing...
Things I know:-
The SSH tunnel works fine, as I can VNC from client to home
VNC listening viewer works fine, as tested on 2 machines on my home LAN
VNC listening viewer doesn't work over the SSH tunnel...
Any ideas much appreciated...
