Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Enable the IPv6 and see if it works after that.

Your DNS servers are not set on the server or your workstation. If you can ping and access VNC by IP address, but not by name you have a DNS issue. Test this by pinging to a remote machine by DNS name.
