Session without typing password?

You're correct, John, but that's just for VNC3 based viewers.  That
threw me for a loop, too, because I don't usually use the RealVNC 4 very
much.  The menu structure that he reported appears to be a VNC4 viewer
and it's all different in there.  I also agree with your security
warning.  It's a lot better than setting the server to not have a
pssword, though!  :)

"Save Configuration File to" is what you're wanting. It will offer to
save the password as well, This *can* be a security hole, even though
the password is encrypted, so you may or may not want to save the
password in the file, if you're using a shared PC.

You mean: The title bar of VNC Viewer? There is no menu entry to save
the session settings.
The menu entries - aside from the usual Windows menu entries such as
"resize" and "close"
are:

  Full Screen
  Ctrl
  Alt
  Send F8
  Send Ctrl-Alt-Del
  Refresh Screen
  New Connection...
  Options...
  Connection Info...
  About...

Under Options, there is a Tab "Defaults", with button "Save As Defaults"
and "Save Configuration File to...",
but nothing related to saving the session settings.

Could it be that you are refering to a different menu?
