Ok... now why would you need or want to do that?

I've never actually tried display 0.  On one of my machines, this is the
relevant line in /etc/vncservers:


and it works fine. 

If I understand what you're trying to do, i.e. tunnel your vnc session, you
need to use something like this with ssh:

ssh -L 5902:localhost:5901 myserver

where myserver is the server that you're planning to log into.

Then something like this will bring up your desktop:

vncviewer -AutoSelect=0 -LowColourLevel 1 -PreferredEncoding ZRLE localhost:2

Be sure that you've run vncpasswd to set up the vnc password on your remote
computer first.
