The way I have mine setup is with Tight VNC (fairly new) [tightvnc.org]
Then run it with the local option (so it binds to 127.0.0.1 instead of
outside interface (for security reasons).  Then I use Putty to SSH in and
use that to port forward.

Then after I have SSH session I do VNC to "localhost:10" which drops me to
the unix desktop.

The advantages of this are:
Secure encrypted connection.
Ability to use compression (either via SSH or TightVNC)
Compression allows it to be really fast, it's fairly responsive even over a
DSL or cable line.
Also secure in the fact that your VNC port isn't hanging wide open (just
SSH)
If your on the local unix box you can also just start a desktop then do
'vncviewer 127.0.0.1:1' and get your "remote" desktop (so it "moves around"
with you, regardless if your local or remote)
