[2] The Gnome 3 by default did not start on VNC of Author's environment. So I switched to another Window manager on this example, it's XFCE.
[root@dlp ~]#
yum -y install switchdesk

[root@dlp ~]#
yum -y groupinstall Xfce
[root@dlp ~]#
su - fedora
# switch to a user you'd like to config VNC

[fedora@dlp ~]$
switchdesk xfce
# switch to XFCE
