Hello to all.

I have just upgrade a VNC server, installed on a Windows NT4 Server
computer, from release 3.3.7 to release 4.0.b4. The problem I am facing is
that whenever I try to establish a new connection to this computer,
VNCViewer prompts the following error message: "Server closed connection
unexpectedly". At the same time the VNC Service on the remote machine stops.
The problem arise with both 3.3.7 and 4.0b4 versions of the viewer.
Other upgrades, on various Windows machines (NT 4 Workstation / NT 4 Server
( W2K Professional) do not show this same problem.
Does anybody have a workaround for it.
