I would like to do be able to tunnel VNC over SSH from my Linux laptop, through my Linux SSH server on the inside of my network, to my Windows VNC server.

Great artwork, I know.
I have the SSH port opened from my router to the SSH box and tunnel all of my HTTP traffic, but I don't want to open a VNC port and would prefer if it was encrypted through SSH.
I've racked my brain and RTFM trying to find this out, so I figured I'd post on here and see if anyone else has any ideas.
I'd prefer to use the openssh client in Ubuntu if at all possible.
So, can this be done?
