Is there a good reason NT authentication couldn't be added to the Windows NT
VNC server?  This seems like a pretty good idea.

other advantage of PCAnywhere: you can use NT Athentication. That means you
can authorize your NTDOMAIN\ntuser to access all your server remotely and
don't have to remember a separate remote password for each of your servers.
User can authorize your colleague's NTDOM\ntuser to get remote access to
only 3 of your 12 servers.

With VNC if you use just one remote password for all your servers (easy to
remember) you cannot authorize your colleague to get remote access to 3 of
your 12 servers. If you tell him the general password, he will get access to
all of them.
