VNC to Ubuntu 10.10 Suddenly Stopped Working

Hey everyone,

I've started to set up a server at my house, where I eventually want to run it headless, and I can just VNC in from my other Desktop. I installed Ubuntu 10.10, setup remote desktop on the server, and from there was able to do any work remotely. That was nice. I turn the computer off at night, and the next day when I was going to work on it, I cannot VNC in anymore. One day passed, and now every time I try to use VNC it comes up with "Failed to connect to server" I also set a static IP address on the server too, so I know the address isn't changing every so often.

I did it earlier, so I know I have it set up correctly, but when I restarted the computer, did some magical firewall get setup without my knowledge?
