Here's one wild a** guess, find out what port vncserver uses on the
Apple system.  Normally vnc uses ports from 5900 up.  Typically in
vncviewer you need to specify the port by appending :1 or similar number
to the IP address (or name) where :1 would use port 5901, :0 would be
port 5900, :2 would be port 5902, etc.

The other possible problem is that one or the other system has a
firewall blocking vnc.

Additional info on the error being seen and details on how you are
invoking vncviewer would help diagnose the problem.
