Making VNC more secure using SSH - More advanced use

At the web page
"Making VNC more secure using SSH":

I have a question about the paragraph "More advanced use":
"In fact, the connection can be forwarded to a port on a third machine at the other end - it doesn't have to be snoopy that's running the VNC server, but remember that connections between snoopy and third machine will not be encrypted, only the one between you and snoopy. "

How to setup vnc over ssh so that connections between snoopy (machine linux1) and third machine WILL be encrypted?

There is usually no need to encrypt the data between snoopy and the third machine, they are on the same LAN. If you were worried about encryption on the LAN why not just install sshd on the third linux machine and ssh directly into it.
