"remote" vncviewer fails to connect with FC9 vino-server.

I am trying to migrate away from Windows to FC9 some of my KVM free machines.
---
As "proof of concept" I have configured the FC9 side of my development machine to run the same as the W2k side (dual boot). I am using a laptop with FC9 as my remote vncviewer client.
---
Everything works fine from the W2k side. no passwords, no encryptions, no fuss. I reboot to FC9, with gnome remote desktop (vino-server). Configurations Sharing - enable all, security disable all. Network disable "only allow local ...", enable alternate port 5900. Software firewall is disabled.
---
The laptop publishes the date & time, and "CCon: connected to host <dev machine> port 5900" and hangs until I press <ctrl><C> where upon it publishes the date & time again and "main: CleanupSignalHandler called" and exits.
---
I can run vncviewer from the vino-server machine. It is dual headed and has two X sessions.
---
How do I configure the vino-server machine to accept a vncviewer session to an instantiated gnome session without server side security features?
---
I am a single user running many "single user" machines in parallel. These machines are KVM free and are locked up in dark, physically secure, wiring closets. I hope to migrate to a cluster configuration sometime in the future - after I migrate to a Fedora core 9, 10, ....
