But that page says that VNC communicates in "plain text" and I've been
told repeatedly that it is using some sort of X protocol that is not plain
text. It's not encrypted, but it isn't plain text either. This is
important because any sniffer could easily read any plain text, but it
takes a little work to read the VNC communications. More importantly, the
password is encrypted -- some would say that it isn't encrypted very well,
but it is encrypted.
Please correct me if I have this wrong.
