Hello all.
I have Fedora 15 with Tigervnc on an Intel processor. I want to connect to it using VNC from a different PC with XP and VNC viwewr. I have tried with 2 VNC viewers (Tight and Tiger), and I get connection refused.
the computers are on LAN, using EDIMAX as a router.
pinging from the XP to the LINUX works well.
Pinginging vice versa stalls w/o response.

Is firewall blocking it?
