Can you ping the address specified?
Are you sure the IP is right on the other end?
telent IP.Add.re.ss 5900
THere is a space between the address and 5900.
When you do this you should see RFB XXX
So there are a couple other things that "may" be hapening
1. The viewer's firewall is content filtering - possible if your
behind a corporate firewall very unlikely if it is a home product.
2. The server's ISP blocks vnc traffic or port number. Dosen't happen
much you can verify this by having someone on the server end go to
http://www.canyouseeme.org/ and check port 5900. (this will also
double check the IP)
