Norbert,
	the IP forwarding is not necessary if you use ssh and open ssh
access on the firewall - this is actually pretty secure when you  keep ssh
updated.
	This is how it works when you connect as "julius" to computer
"turtle": on the client issue the following command: ssh -f -C -L
5900:turtle:5900 -l julius turtle /bin/sleep 3600 what it all means: -f -
go into background after asking for passphrase, -C - compression on, level
determined by ssh.conf, -L - forward local port 5900 to 5900 on host
turtle, -l - connect as julius, /bin/sleep - run that on turtle (to make
sure that connection doesn't go away - i've run into quirky sshd
implementations)
now that ssh is running in the background on the client, run the following
on the client:
vncviewer 127.0.0.1
this will connect you to host turtle, as per -L option.

if you don't run vncserver as the service on your server, replace
/bin/sleep with vncserver command.

good luck, julius
