Logging in via ssh to the user you want to access access via VNC,
running "vncserver" and logging out again is enough. VNC stays available
until the next reboot unless you log in again and stop it.

I can't work that out. My first assumption was that he wanted to start
an ssh session and use it to run a script on the remote host: the script
would start a WINE application several times and would use X11
forwarding to display its window(s) on the local machine. Now I'm not so
sure. A re-reading suggests he might want to run a script on his local
machine that starts the WINE app on a remote host.

I've decided I don't understand what he wants to do and will say no more
about it until we hear a clear explanation from him.
