Assuming that is the address of the machine running the VNC server, and that server is listening on port 5900, you should be able to connect to it by pointing your VNC client at localhost:5900

If not, then tell us what you are trying, what it outputs, and what messages end up in the log files (both remote and local), and we should be able to work out what is happening.

edit: make sure that you have no restrictions on localhost in your local firewall, and nothing blocking packets between ....169.251 and ....1.212. Put temporary pass all quick from ... to ... rules in to be sure.
The only dumb question is a question not asked.
The only dumb answer is an answer not given.
