Attached is a script I wrote with help from Mark Price to export a VNC 
session back through an SSH tunnel. The comments are pretty verbose and 
I refer to a lot of VNC WebDocs I've found, so I could remember how to 
set it up again on other servers. I'm currently using it to control a 
9node cluster, XFCE makes a great lightweight VNC Xserver!  -Art at JAX
