Remote assistance for X

A remote computer used by relatives is running FreeBSD and X. I'd like
to find a method to work with the remote desktop to help them solve
problems and maintain the system.
The remote user's existing desktop should be shared, rather than
creating a new session.
Traffic and passwords should be encrypted.
The remote system could be on dialup, so faster is better.
The remote system should initiate the connection so there's no need for
the remote users to change firewall settings. Also no security concern
when the software isn't being used.
So far, ssvnc and x11vnc look to be the only combination that meets the
requirements. Are there others?
