I'm a bit confused,
How can you have two computers with the same IP address on the same LAN? Or, do you mean that when VNC does NOT work is when you are trying to connect to it, from a different network, outside the network that VNC is running on?
Please try to clarify a little better where the computers are, when they are not working, and their connectivity to each other.

I setup a VNC server 4.0 on a Windows SBS 20003 opened up ports 47 and
1723 to allow VPN connection which works fine.
This LAN is 192.168.1.1
I can connect just fine onto the LAN but cannot run the viewer to get to
a VNC server when I'm logged in from a LAN with the same 192.168.1.1
Logged in from a 192.168.2.1 LAN onto this 192.168.1.1 LAN and VNC works
If I log in from a 192.168.1.1 LAN onto this 192.168.1.1 LAN VNC will
not work, It will fined the server but when I enter the password I get a
"VNC Authentication failed"
This 192.168.1.1 LAN with the SBS 2003 server iis running DHCP, DNS,
RRAS with a Netopia router
Any suggestions ?
