I have an iMac with VNC Viewer and would like to set up VNC on Fedora so that I can remote access in. What do I have to do? I tried the tiger vnc route, but wasn't able to successfully setup.

Take a look at: /lib/systemd/system/vncserver@.service

# Quick HowTo:
# 1. Copy this file to /etc/systemd/system/vncserver@:<display>.service
# 2. Edit <USER> and vncserver parameters appropriately
# ("runuser -l <user> -c /usr/bin/vncserver %i -arg1 -arg2")
# 3. Run systemctl daemon-reload
# 4. Run systemctl enable vncserver@:<display>.service

Heere is a god Step by step tutorial (this works also for FC17)

Please continue trying. Checke the necessary ports - configure them in tiger vnc - open them in the firewall service - be aware of choosing the correct port.

It works, I already got it running from Win 7...
