Heya. Here's some info I've collected over the years
regarding securing VNC connections:
As you'll see in there, the most popular application
used to securify any "plaintext" TCP/IP application (eg, VNC,
X Windows, etc.) is SSH.
Lastly, in general, no, you won't need to "change" the
VNC server to get a secure tunnel working. You will, of course,
need to install a new piece of software onto the server PC (I
hope that doesn't count as "changing" the server).
