What makes you think port 5900 is blocked?

What is the display no on the vnc server? The port to connect to is 5900+n
where n is the display number up to 99.

Can you ping the VNCServer from the client that you are trying to connect

Have  you  got  a  firewall  running on your PC or between you and the
remote PC?
