I see from:

>The VNC Authentication is already designed so that many logins from one
source will cause further logins to be denied

Could someone point me to documentation describing this?

i.e. It would seem reasonable to me that after X unsuccessful attempts to
log in to VNC, it would shut itself down - requiring a local user to restart
the service, reboot the machine, or in some other manner kick it back into

It sounds like this is already present, but I haven't come across any
documentation on this point. Could someone kindly point me in the right
