The RealVNC FAQ also mentions VNC Viewer (Java) which is accessed at 5800+n 
where n is the display number. Is that what you are using (the viewer, not 
the port number)?

What happens (as seen from the laptop) when you try to connect? My experience 
with VNC suggests that VNC over dialup would likely be a very painful 
experience if you could get it to work at all...
