Cannot connect to FC5 box on several network services

Hi guys,

I've had FC4 running for a while now and have just done a fresh install of FC5 (not impressed, wish i could go back :P).

Anyway i can't get any network services running so that i can connect from a winxp machine.

I am trying to get running:

They all fail to connect, but i can ping the machine and verify it's there.

I disabled SELinux at install time, added the remote machiens ip address to /etc/hosts.allow with
checked nothing was in /etc/hosts.deny

service sshd/vncserver status
and it said they're running.

added the iptables rule
iptables -A input -j ACCEPT
- just to test but still no joy

i ran
vncserver :1
and it said it ran sp i tried connecting with ipaddress:5901 (changed that for a few different displays)

still nada

What am i doing wrong?

What does the output of 'iptables -L' show? I know you added the rule, but if things are being reject *before* they're being allow, nothing's going to make it through.

LOL i went all through iptables, flushed it all, added accept for everything, saved it still no joy, then i noticed the firestarter icon had changed checked and it had blocked attempts for both SSH works but still working on samba, i can see it from WINXP but i can't seem to access anything, i can't see any shares that i have setup, i have added a user with smbpasswd -a <user> the same as my winxp user name. It sitll won't show shares.

As for VNC it won't connect to server through a client and when going there via browser i get
RFB 003.008
