just on thought, reduce the color depth on the win2k system to 256, set the update handling on the winvnc server to "Poll Full Screen" and retry the connect. If it works reset the color depth to a higher value.

Subject: not receiving any display data
I set up a VNC server (using WinVNC) on a Win2K system. I am able to
access it from a client on another Win2K system (also WinVNC).
However, when I try to access it from my Mac OS X system, it doesn't
work. It connects, and accepts my password, but all I get is a blank
screen. (It happens to be a blank screen of exactly the right
dimensions, FWIW.) Forcing a screen refresh has no effect. I have
tried several VNC clients on the Mac: VNCDimension, VNCThing, vncviewer
running on XDarwin, and three VNCViewer adaptations for OS X
(adaptations by Tim Senecal, Robert Kedoin, and Helmut Maierhofer). All
six clients give exactly the same behavior (except for the color/pattern
of the blank screen).
The two Win2K systems are on the same physical LAN; the Mac is connected
by VPN, and is effectively on the same network.
