you need a redhat compatible version
rpm -U <VNC Viewer>.rpm
rpm -U vnc-E4_3-x86_linux.rpm
If you get an error indicating that libstdc++ is missing then you will need to install a compatibility library. If you have yum installed then use the following command:
yum install libstdc++
Use the rpm command with the -e (remove) option to remove the software, as follows:
rpm -e vnc-E

If you really want to use realvnc, you'll need to extract the file first.

Since I don't know which one you've downloaded, I'll use the example of the 64 bit generic installer.
tar -xzf  VNC-5.2.3-Linux-x64-ANY.tar.gz

Once it's extracted, you'll find the executable files in the extracted folder VNC-5.2.3-Linux-x64.  You can run it from that directory with ./vncviewer.  If you want run those from your path, the simplest thing to do is to link it to /usr/local/sbin and you can run it as you would any binary.

native vnc clients are called vinagre on gnome and krdc in kde, install either and you have vncviewer installed too.

Sure.  However, he asked specifically about installing RealVNC, and that's not a default or in a package that you can readily yum or rpm install.
