Win2003 login remotely to FC4 via VNC

I know that there are heaps threads about this topics , but this what I did without any success with FC4

I am logging as root (I know the security implication)
[root localhost ~]# rpm -q --info vnc-server

The gedit /etc/sysconfig/vncserver

[root localhost ~]# vncpasswd root

[root localhost ~]# vncserver
New 'localhost.localdomain:2 (root)' desktop is localhost.localdomain:2
Starting applications specified in /root/.vnc/xstartup
Log file is /root/.vnc/localhost.localdomain:2.log

Is the command "vncserver" same as "service vncserver start" ?

[root localhost ~]# service vncserver start
Starting VNC server: 2:root A VNC server is already running as :2

I could not find the option that [B]he[/B](in the quote above) was pointing , could you please look at this and let me what I missed?

The error message that I received when I typed in the ip address for the address is below:

> VNC Viewer:
> unable to connect to host: The requested address is not valid in its context.(10049)

I did stop iptables as qoute above suggested.

I checked this as well
