VNC connection from a MacBook

I have Fedora 21 installed on a desktop and am trying to access the files on it from a MacBook (running OSX 10.6.8). I'm able to access the MacBook's files on the desktop using Nautilus, and I can ssh into the desktop from the laptop, but I can't establish a connection using the Mac Finder, vnc, or ftp. I think it's a problem on the Linux side, but I don't really know what I'm doing ... I've enabled screen sharing, file sharing, and remote log-in through the GUI (Gnome environment), and I can see the 'remote desktop' listed under 'Shared' on the Mac Finder, but when I click to connect, it just says "Contacting" interminably. Is there something else I need to set up on the Linux end?
