When two computers try go connect to the same VNC host

I've been playing about with the ConnectPriority setting in the
registry, but I've had no luck.

Which registry key is it put it?
Should this setting go into:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ORL\WinVNC3\Default ??

I've tried this, using the name "ConnectPriority", type: "REG_DWORD"
and set the value of it to 2.

But this still disconnects anybody else who's on the computer.

Please help!

Thanks, Dan

You can set it with registry, "ConnectPriority".
