vncviewer: VNC server supports protocol version 3.3 (viewer 3.3)
Password: 
vncviewer: VNC authentication succeeded
vncviewer: read failed

There's the problem - password succeeds, but nothing comes up on screen.

WinVNC 3.3.1: 486 DX2/66, 16MB, WinVNC R9, Windoze 95
vncviewer: PII, 64MB, FreeBSD vnc port.

BTW, things worked fine with another windoze computer which was on the
same network at: 192.168.0.3:0 , so I'm stumped.
