I have not followed the whole thread, but I do it this way:
ssh to the firewall with portforwarding enabled
ssh firewall -L 5901:clientpc1:5900
and in another window
vncviewer :1
(with windows you can use teraterm or putty and enable ssh forwarding in
the same manner, and connect to localhost:1 with vncviewer).
You should enable compression of ssh (with -C parameter), which makes vnc
more responsive and faster! And - most important - everything is secure.
VNC is INSECURE without encryption around it!
