This means every user that needs to have its own VNC connection needs:
1. The .vnc directory created in their Home directotry
2. same goes for the passwd file
3. Does the xstartup file in the Root directory works for everybody, or does it need to be 'copied' to other user's home dir as well?

"If this file doesn't exist [meaning /home/jdimpson/.vnc/passwd], the
jdimpson VNC session wouldn't start."

This is the problem.
