This could be due to a cruddy graphics driver - I ran into that here with 
an ati radeon 9800 or some such - You may want to see if you can fetch one 
from your vendor.

I could have sworn that there was a thread in this list about this - you 
might want to poke around, and check fedora's bugzilla.

This may be a firewall issue on your machine - if you run either 
'redhat-config-firewall' or 'lokkit' (I haven't got a fedora box to verify 
this on right now), you can enable ssh'ing into your machine.

Hope this helps,
