Not sure why you need to start it via ssh? I was able to go into Desktop 
Sharing and set up my computer at work to "accept uninvited connections" and 
"allow uninvited connections to control the desktop". Now, if I VPN into my 
work network, I just startup Remote Desktop Connection on my end and type my 
computer's name into the box, it asks me for the password, and then I have a 
window with the remote computer's desktop in it, which I can control.

Note that this is a little bit different than getting a remote login. By the 
way, if you know of a way to do a remote X Window login, I'd be interested in 
knowing how to set that up.
