OK.  I can now ping from one machine to another and vice-versa (I think). I set my TAP-Win32 to the same address as my colinux which happened to be 10.0.2.15 mask 255.255.255.0 and left default gateway blank.

here is a snapshot of the related section of my processes. Elipses ..... means it was truncated by the console window

Restating the objective: is to run VNC in windows to display a desktop or some such from co-linux.  I can start vncserver in colinux and set a password.  I also tried
export DISPLAY=10.0.2.15:1
xclock &
[1] 2334
COLINUX:~/.VNC# Client is not authorized to connect to ServerError: Can't open display 10.0.2.15:1
[1]+  Exit 1                  xclock
colinux:~/.vnc#
tried switching to non-root user and get the same error

(I'm assuming with that error I can't go further however I tried anyway thinking I might get a blank screen and this is what I got)

Whenever I try to connect from windows using RealVNC or TightVNC i get the same errors:
Failed to connect to server(10.0.2.15)

I've tried connecting to:
10.0.2.15
10.0.2.15:1
10.0.2.15:5900
10.0.2.15:5901

I know there are several ways to setup networking for
colinux and the instructions on the wiki can be confusing.
As I said, I think your windows tun/tap address should be
on the same IP subnetwork as your virtual linux.

In my case I have

C:\temp>ipconfig /all
...
Ethernet adapter tuntap:
        Description . . . . . . . . . . . : TAP-Win32 Adapter V8 (coLinux)
        Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-FF-77-A4-F2-4C
        Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No
        IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1
        Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
        Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :

shoebox:~# ifconfig
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:ff:39:6d:48:00
          inet addr:192.168.0.106  Bcast:192.168.0.255
...

So: for me 192.168.0.x is the virtual IP network through
which host and guest communicate. In your case, either change
       the tun/tap address to 10.0.2.xxx
       or the linux addresss to 192.168.37.yyy

On the windows side you also need to enable connection sharing of
your main (physical) connection (10.252.248.152)
