First make sure that the VNC server is running (#pgrep vncserver)and try the IP address (not the hostname) of the VNC server... probably you don't have the hostname of your server in your local name resolver (/etc/hosts) or DNS.
By the way, did you set up a screen number?
why you try to connect to the vncserver, use following connection string: IP_Address:screen_no
where screen_no is the screen number for the VNC session, which I assume you provided when running the server OR vncserver defaulted to :1 (screen 1).
Hope this helps.
