I'm trying to use remote desktop on my laptop (running Fedora) to my desktop (also running Fedora) on the same local network.

I configured Remote Desktop on my desktop via System -> Preferences -> Remote Desktop, verified that the port is open by nmap, and attempted to connect from my laptop via vinagre (also tried appending :5900 for the port, and using the ip address). In all cases, the connection fails with a popup that says "Connection closed\n Connection to host was closed."

EDIT: I am able to use vinagre from the desktop to remote desktop into itself, just not from one machine to the other. I tried vncviewer and a similar problem occurs (unable connect to socket: No route to host (113))
