Jeremy, port 5900 (DISPLAY :0) is your X11 console. This is the session you are logged into on the remote machine (the machine to sshed to).
port 5901 is a virtual X11 desktop started by the vncserver service in /etc/init.d. They are 2 different X11 sessions that you can connect to via vnc. They probably have 2 different password files (unless you copied one to the other like I did) and a connection to :1 will give you a different desktop than a connection to :0.


You should concentrate on one or the other. Trying to debug both is getting confusing!

You should try firestarter its got a very easy to use gui. http://firestarter.sourceforge.net/
And to add port 5900 or 5901:
Start firestarter
Click the rules tab
Click Open Ports right click and select New Rule and add the port you want and if you want another just add another new rule. Very simple and easy to install rpm.


Hopefully once it hits 1.0 fedora will add this by default.
