When you run the VNC server, the default port is 5900. In your distro,
this would refer to the first display :0. because your vnc server is
listening on display 2, this translates to listening on port 5902. 5903
would be display 3 etc.. 

At least this is my understanding. 

If you wish to export your current display, ie display 0, you may need
to run something like x11vnc (at least this is what I do.. I am not
sure about the fedora configuration )
