Yes, each user needs a passwd file.

No, /root/.vnc/passwd is only used for the root user. Notice the "su -"
in front of the command. This changes to the assigned user and starts
Using their example of jdimpson, you would need a
/home/jdimpson/.vnc/passwd file. If this file doesn't exist, the jdimpson
VNC session wouldn't start.
