registry edit for originally configured password

Yes you can a) add AllowProperties DWORD in registry to prevent editing and
b) change the default password key. The password is encrypted but I assume
you can enter the password you want on a PC and then copy it across.

This can all be done usually with REGEDT32 connecting to the remote

All this is in the docs.

Subject: registry edit for originally configured password

I've noticed a rather annoying trait for RealVNC and I'm confident one of
you can help me out.  When VNC is installed you enter a default password.
This is the password used when nobody is logged into the computer, right?
OK.  I've noticed now with the latest ver one can access the default
settings, yeah!  ;)  I have 40+ clients that need their default password
changed.  Is there a registry key that I can edit remotely instead of
sitting down at each wrkst?
