from what i can tell from libvncserver's webpages, it's not possible, and you need an additional package rdp2vnc listed on the libvncserver homepage

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

I think you will need to install the vnc windows client http://www.tightvnc.com/download.html on your Windows pc to connect to your linux box. And if you want a nice gui when you login than run this http://www.karlrunge.com/x11vnc/ setup.
I know remoting from Linux to Windows is as simple as running the remote desktop found in Fedora but not as simple from linux to Windows. Wish it was.

Good luck
