Passwords on NT VNC Server

How I understand it:  Only one current user profile.  There is only one
password, held in two places in the registry.  You can't setup different
passwords for different users.  Users are not "identified".  Anyone with
vncviewer and the password can connect unless you set up VNC to filter by IP
address using AuthHosts value.

Anyone, please correct me if I am wrong.
