TBH I would not expose *either* protocol directly to the Internet, given MS's security track record and the inherently rather weak security of the base VNC protocol. I prefer to run both of them through an encrypted tunnel (typically a SSH forwarded port, as you suggest).

Haven't tried running RDP though an SSH tunnel.
