Check that the firewall is allowing tcp connections to the port number your vnc server is listening to.

my firewall in now off :D !!! –  Emma Jun 1 '10 at 10:29
and then, can you establish a tcp connection? does the machine respond to your icmp requests? does the vnc server listen to the correct interface? –  Maxwell Jun 1 '10 at 14:50

Check if VNC server is running.

netstat -a
