By default, VNC Server displays a notification message in the bottom right corner of the host computer’s desktop (top right under Mac OS X) each time a user connects:
Note: A similar message appears on disconnection.
You can choose different notification options on the Connections tab of the VNC Server - Options dialog. More on this dialog.
Preventing notification messages
You can disable notification messages on connection and disconnection. To do this, choose Do nothing.
Displaying connection prompts
You can replace messages with connection prompts that enable a host computer user (or an already-connected user) to accept or reject new users. To do this, choose Show accept/reject prompt.
Note: Some users (those with sufficient VNC permissions) are able to bypass connection prompts.
Alternatively, you can conditionally replace messages with connection prompts so that they only appear when a host computer user is ‘present’ to accept or reject them. To do this, choose Show prompt only if user logged on (Service Mode) or Show prompt only if user connected (Virtual Mode). For more information, see Preventing particular users connecting.
