I have the firewalls disabled on all of these
machines.  The machine that I am able to successfully
VNC into (RedHat 8.0) is one of the few linux boxes
that I have with a firewall turned ON.  I can VNC into
that one machine and from it, I can VNC into the
others.  BUT I want to directly VNC into all of my
machines from the outside.
