R: NT Server refusing connection

which version of VNC Server are you running on your server? If you are
running VNC 4.0b4, have a look on the event log and see if VNC have logged
any error message like "Unable to set sockopt TCP_NODELAY".
If so, I am running into your same problem (except that my machine runs W2K
professional) and to solve it I had to rollback to VNCServer 3.3.7.
VncViewer seems not to have any role in this problem. It pops up independent
of VNCViewer release.
Also, on previous mails I have found someone suggesting to uninstall
ServicePack 6 on your server and go back to ServicePack 5.

I hope that this helps
