OK. If you are getting an ssh login, then you do not need to worry about any firewalls.

I take it that the firewall is forwarding port 38901 to the ssh server's (and vnc server's) address, port 22? Just make sure that you are making an ssh connection to the right machine!

Make sure that vncviewer is trying to connect to port 5900.

You would be better off using localhost in the ssh command, like this:
$ ssh -L 5900:localhost:5900 -p[thatnumber] user@host
