    remote desktop doesnt work from windows box to linux


    HI,
    I have a FC3 linux box. I have another XP machine in another room both on the same LAN. I used RealVNC to connect from my windows XP machine to my FC3 machine. Every time I did this it says "unable to connect to host:A socket operation was attempted to an unreachable host (10065)" I tried using UltraVNC and TightVNC but the problem persists. On the other hand I was able to connect to the Windows machine from my FC3 box. I could ping to the other system from each of the system. I dont know what the problem is. Please help.
    Thanks in advance,
    Yogi.

    Firewall

    I have the default windows firewall running in Windows but it lets the connection through. as far as I know no firewall is running in my FC2 box.
