Good. You're trying to tunnel vnc through ssh.
I hope this helps:
Assuming that caspermac.nyc.rr.com is your local machine, try
ssh -X -l <username> -L 8888:<ipaddress1>:5900 <ipaddress1>
then do a 'vinagre caspermac.nyc.rr.com:8888'
Note: Port 8888 is an arbitrary high unused port.
Remember to start a "vnc server" on the remote machine.
