VNC Server on Win98 PC's requesting password on every boot.

That is due to you setting the current user password (it is active when a
user is logged on). and not the default password that the service uses at
To fix this click the start button -> programs -> vnc -> administrative
tools -> show default settings (look at the properties title to know which
settings you are adjusting).
To the developers:
Can we have it set the default password instead of the current user by
default??? This is the most common configuration problem in VNC.

Subject: VNC Server on Win98 PC's requesting password on every boot.
I'm new to VNC. I used to use PCAnywhere on our LAN but to licensing and
various other issues I've removed this software from the system. Anyway,
I've put VNC on the system as a replacement and all-in-all I've been
relatively happy with it.
Our system is a SBS2000 server with a mix of Win98 and Win2K clients. I
have installed VNC server on all of the workstations. The Win2K clients
work faultlessly, however, the Win98 PC's seem to a problem retaning the
VNC Server password. Everytime a Win98 PC is booted VNC Server advises
the user that no valid password has been set up and the user is then
asked to set the password.
Is this a software 'feature' or is there a way that I can force the
Win98 clients to retain their server passwords?
