yes vnc can run on a lan, as long as the server can talk to the client and vica versa
all you have to know is the ip (or hostname) and the vnc desktop number you want to connect with (and of course tha password for that display)

if you can ping the two machines, then vnc should work. the format is:
vnc ip:num
if you want to find out what number the server is running on, try:
nmap localhost

192.168.x.x is going to be a reserved IP address, you might need to forward the VNC ports through the firewall to the real world IP address usually 5800-5900.
