Is it enough safe to run VNC throught VPN to access my pc at home ?

I connect to my PC with VPN and after I connect to my PC with VNC with
my private IP, the port 5900 on my router is close

I read that I could use VNC trough SSH too.

Thank you !

that it won't connect unless OpenVPN is working - no worries about the
tunnel failing and accidentally connecting unprotected.


PS  VNC through OpenVPN is superior since (ordinarily) OpenVPN is UDP not
TCP.  This prevents slowdowns on error recovery (packet retransmission)  
compared to when TCP is tunnelled through TCP (e.g., VNC through SSH) since
there aren't two simultaneous nested recovery mechanisms trying to get back
