Sounds like the changes you made didn't make in to the default reg key under
HKLM, but rather made into the "current user"  reg key (under HKCU).  Don't
know why exactly from your description, though.  Log in as Administrator,
search the registry for "winvnc3", look for the info under the HKCU key,
copy or export it, and import it under the HKLM winvnc3 key.

Subject: VNC Service Problems


I have a client with 2 NT4 servers, each with SP6, and VNC 3.3.3r9. They
are both configured identically in VNC (except for display and port
numbers).
 
I am having problems with VNC on one of the servers. VNC is configured
to start as a service on both servers. The service starts fine, no error
messages. The troubled server doesn't respond to VNC connections unless
the administrator is logged in to the server. I have that server to
respond on display 2, and if I do a port scan on that server, ports 5802
and 5902 respond. However, if I log off of the machine while connected
to VNC, the connection disappears, and if I do another port scan, only
port 5900 shows up on the server. 
 
I have set VNC up on countless servers, all the same way, and have never
had this trouble before. 
 
Any ideas why this would be happening and how I can fix it?
