I use iTeleport. The security settings inside it let me set up the ssh
tunnel and which port the VNC server is running. iTeleport seems to
work with Linux, MacOSX and Windoze VNC servers no problem. It even
lets me set up an ssh tunnel to a gateway machine and then port forward
to other machines behind the firewall.
The general procedure is:
1) create a new connection
2) set the name and port of the machine that is running VNC. NOTE: this
does not have to be the same as the SSH gateway.
3) In security go to encryption and select SSH. This is the machine
that is running SSH and as I said it can be a gateway machine or the VNC
4) Select the OS you are connecting to. I suspect that iTeleport has
different click settings depending on what you are connecting to.
You are now done.
