You could try setting the permissions in the registry
\Hkey_Local_Machine\ORL\WinVNC3\ to only allow Administrator to change it.

		I have used VNC 2 months on all my WIN2K servers and it
works very good !

		I find that the VNC configuration, especially the password
and accept
		connection flag, depends on the user that console is being
logged on.
		Therefore, console user may disable the VNC connection or
even change the
		password, i.e. there's no central control of VNC regardless
of console user.

		I would like to know if it is possible to configure VNC such
that:
		- Only Administrator (or assigned users/groups) can change
the VNC
		configuration (accept connection/password & etc).  No
unauthorized person
		can turn if off and change the password.
		- The password is NOT associated with current console logged
user, instead
		there is only one administrative password.

		Any suggestion? Are they achievable by registry settings ?

		James
