Found that if I disable the firewall completely, via

having the firewall otherwise enabled?

I had the same problem. Decided to edit /etc/sysconfig/iptables (after making a backup first). I just duplicated the line for port 80 and changed the 80 to a 5901. Now everything works just fine.


Of course it would be more secure to tunnel the VNC session over ssh, but if you aren't worried about security (all on your local LAN), this should help.
