Check the usual suspects?  Is your firewall configured correctly?  Is vino
actually listening (netstat)?

I don't know vino specifically, does it leverage the VNC X module?

I can't say I've seen this issue.  Do you have a Gnome session open on the
console at the same time?  I know Gnome doesn't like that.
