VNC and Remote Desktop

The problem is actually that current VNC releases will only allow session
zero to be remotely accessed, and require that it is the Console session.
This is always the case after a reboot, under XP/2003.
VNC Enterprise Edition 4.1.3 includes code to ensure that session zero is
reconnected to the console whenever a VNC connection is made to the machine.
This code will also be available in VNC Free Edition 4.1. A more complete
solution will follow.
