Without rooting, how can I SSH tunnel to my homePC running sshd?

I need ssh tunnel to VNC home, but i don't trust VNC, so I want to use it with SSH to make it safe!

Thank you for any help!

If you want to connect to your home PC from your phone, there is ConnectBot

Take a look at QuickSSHd - it claims "root" is optional, but I don't know whether it'll work with what you're trying to achieve.

There's also the quite popular ConnectBot which should allow you to tunnel in to your PC.
