Tunnelling X output over SSH

This is a good one.  Since VNC is pretty slow over the internets, it may be better to have the NX nomachine server setup on your Ubuntu box, and then tunnel that X output directly over SSH.  To do that, make sure you have the checkbox set in the NX client to push all data over SSL, and then tunnel port 22 on the server in question to 127.0.0.1.  Then connect to 127.0.0.1 and you should be in with a grin.
