I see what happened. When I first was asking about VNC, on the tightVNC list,
that is when someone told me to try RealVNC. In the same post, he said to
use vncconfig to communicate with the existing server, so I got it in my head
that all commands for the server go through vncconfig -- and was looking
there. I tried it, and it works fine. There's a good chance, when I set
this up, that I'll make sure I'm always using a higher number display most
people won't use, so I can be sure to start and stop the same server each

Tried this. It does seem to work only with a service, and has no effect on a
running server if it isn't setup through Windows to run as a service.
I'm still looking it all over.
