Ok so for some reason I cannot use VNC (Real or Tight) to connect to any of my servers using the app itself.  But I can connect using the java viewer from the server but thats it.  I do not have the Windows Firewall service even enabled at this point, no software firewall crapplications or anything like that.  This is on an internal network.. full native-mode domain.

I don't knowingly have any other applications installed that might use port 5900... I did a full reboot after removing realvnc and again after installing tightvnc.  When I attemp to connect to a server (who is running the vnc server, I double-checked) it immediately bombs out with a "Failed to Connect to listening server".

No firewalls, can ping, browse and RDP to destination.. just no VNC.

Please any help this is driving me totally nuts.
