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.
I turned off my localhost firewall and pf is forwarding port 22 to my vnc client.

I used:
$ vncviewer localhost:4
since my vncserver is setup for display 4 but I get a cannot connect error.
I setup my vnc client to listen on port 5900
