Forward port over SSH?

view story

http://www.daniweb.com – I have a Verizon FiOS router. I need to be able to forward port 5900 (VNC) to a specific machine, is there any way to do this over SSH? I can't just use Lynx because the router config page uses JavaScript for everything. Is there any way I can forward this port? Is there a way to tell the router to forward it without using the config page? I know it's possible because Skype does it. (General)
