Can't set password when running as service

Postby bevtech » 2007-02-13 02:47

- Install VNC as a service.
- Start the service manually.
- Set the password.

The problem is that when the VNC service is started automatically, it will just complain about the missing password and shut down before you get a chance to set a password. Starting VNC and setting the password there, sets a separate password - almost drove me nuts before I found out that!

Summing up the pitfalls:

- The password you set when VNC is started as a regular application, is not the password that VNC uses when started as a service.
