Re: vnc listen to

In my experience VNC has always listened for connections on the public 
address, once remote connections were enabled. How that is accomplished 
depends on the particular VNC server you are using. In Ubuntu, for 
example, from within X you go to System -> Preferences -> Remote Desktop 
and enable the appropriate options.

There is no "services" service. /etc/services is just a central database 
that is used by many networking applications. I doubt VNC makes any use 
of it. But declaring the VNC ports will make your netstat output a tad 
more friendly.
