RDP over SSH?

I currently have RDP set up at home, on its default 3389 on a Windows XP machine, and im forwarding 23 external to 3389 internal (where I work blocks many ports outgoing).

I want to put the session in a secure tunnel so it cant be monitored. I think that I need to implement SSH. Everything that I find on the web is geared towards linux.

What do I need to do this? What are the steps to do this? Why can't they find a 6'4" terrorist?

Help me out...

RDP encrypts by default:

Platform SDK: Terminal Services - Remote Desktop Protocol

Well here is what worked for me.
At home I installed openssh for windows: http://sshwindows.sourceforge.net/

At work I used putty for my ssh connection.

Putty: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html

Open Putty --> enter external IP address of home system
In Putty click on connections -->ssh --> tunnels
Enter 3389 for source port
Enter <internal ip address of home system>:3389
Destination = Local
Click Add
Save these settings in Putty with identifyable name so you don't have to reenter it each time.

Connect to home using putty through ssh port 23.
Once authenticated just minimize Putty.
Start Remote Desktop
Type localhost in for computer name.
Login with home username/password.
Complete whatever illigitimate activity you have planned ;-)
Done.

By the way: don't forward 23 to 3389 at home.  Just be sure that 23 forwards to the xp machine.

Thankyou to both of you for helping me out. I actually ended up using WinSSHD and then PuTTy for the client end of it. Putty is cool because its a very small file and there is no install required. Thanks again!
