That error doesn't make much sense unless you have a syntax error.
Did you include those commas in the address?  Does the java
view that you'd get by pointing a browser at
http://198.222.168.189:5802
work any better?

Even if this works, if you are on a local lan you would probably
like Xwindows better.  If you enable xdm logins on the fedora
side and install the free cygwin X (http://www.cygwin.com)
you can start it with:
Xwin -query 198.222.168.189 (from a cygwin bash prompt)
and get a graphic login approximately the same as on the
console.  There is a run-from-cd version at
http://xlivecd.indiana.edu/ if you want to try it without
having to install anything.
