Have you got the firewall running on Linux? If so, it is probably
blocking the ports used by Xvnc, the server started by the vncserver
script. Xvnc listens on:

- 590x for vncviewer
- 580x for the Java applet

where x is the desktop number. In case you didn't realize, you can leave
more than copy of Xnvnc running in different logins and use the port
number to select which login to use.

Use the firewall management tool (it is System:Administration:Firewall
on Fedora) to open at least port 5801 (if you want to try the applet)
and 5901 (for vncviewer).
