Depending on the platform of your viewer, you have some options:
- Create a *.vnc file from a running viewer. It's an editable file. Now
start new viewers with `vncviewer /config configfile.vnc`
- Use the -passwd option to vncviewer, read the docs on how to do that.
- remove the password from the server, this also removes the password
question from the viewer.
