don't run VNC, it's horrible, try nx instead at nomachine.org and run it over ssh all nice and securely. Their docs are very good for installation advice.

What does that have to do with his question? From what I read, he mentions ping not responding, but that appears to actually be irrelevant to the question in the end.

Ping is a poor choice and redundant. You KNOW the connection is good if you can ssh.
