Did you set up the tunnel?  If you didn't say -L(something), you aren't
reading enough yet.  Google for "ssh tunnel vnc" for info.  You'll need to
translate the ":1" into its actual port number (I forget the math mapping on
that), and then create a local port with your ssh that maps to the proper port
on the remote box, and then connect to that *local* port with your local VNC
