Yes,
Instead of setting the current user settings for vnc, set the default
settings. start -> programs -> vnc -> administrative tools -> show default
settings.

vnc when you click on the task tray icon shows the current user settings. So
if you log out, or restart without logging in, you will need the default,
but when you are in as a user you will need the user password.

The easiest way is to edit the registry current user/software/orl/vnc/winvnc
and delete the key for password.
Do this for all users. Then when you login and it shows you the current
settings. it will have the default password. just hit ok and all is well.
(till you change the current user....)

Subject: Changing Passwords


I've installed 3.3.3 r9 on many Windows 2000 and NT4 machines, set the
registry defaults, installed the service, restarted, and set the password.
After changing this original password to a new one, I often need to use the
old one to access the machine, but sometime the new one works.  This seems
to only happen after a restart.  Is there a way to hardcode the password in
the registry to be set for all users on that machine.

Thanks,
