Ryan,

I would recommend using VNC 4b4 rather than a VNC 3.x series server on your
Windows machine.  You can either configure the VNC 4b4 server with a
personal password once and not need to worry about it after that, or specify
the a hex-encoded password on the command-line when you start the server.

On the other hand, it may be advisable to discuss your situation with your
IT staff and have them install VNC Server on your machine for you.  This is
particularly advisable in order to help them keep your office network
secure.
