Hi ...

Has anyone had the following problem with logging onto a VNC Server running
on a Windows 2000 Server.

> I have VNC3.3.3 installed on a Windows 2000 Server.
> 
> I am able to signon to this VNC Server with the client, but when the
> Windows 2000 Server 
> is rebooted and I try to signon to the VNC Server again I get the
> following error in a small window  
> after I enter the same password that was valid previously.
> 
                             VNC Authentication Failed

> Once the password is reset I am able to logon again.
> 
> I have tried the same login sequence to a Windows NT4 Server (after a
> reboot), and the password 
> does not need to be reset.
> 
> On both the Windows 2000. and NT Server I have VNC installed as a service
> (automatic startup), and 
> have installed the default registry settings.
> 
> Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
> 
> Regards
