Help with VNC - reverse connection.

When I want to support remote windows machines, I can issue the command:

vncviewer --listen

And then get the end user to run WinVNC.exe and add a client, me, by specifying my address. This way, the firewall configuration is done at my end, and I don't need to try to talk the remote user through it.

I want to do the same for remote linux machines, but am not sure quite how. I've installed the tightvnc server package, and looked at the manpage for vncserver, but not found suitable options. Does anybody know how to accomplish this?
