Connecting to VNC

I am having trouble connecting to VNC server from any machine in my house. The server is running fedora v14.

Previously I was able to connect when i had dsl, but i have since switched to cable and am having a problem

I checked the vnc error log and saw the below error. Note these are excerpts from the file

I have checked
1. VNC server is up and running
2. My username is in the vnc file
3. the port i am trying to connect to is open.

Any help is greatly appreciated

Just for a troubleshooting purpose..

Try fire "vncserver" and create another instance of the vnc server session
Try connecting to that hostnameort and see whether it is working.
