vncpasswd - change a VNC password
vncpasswd allows you to set the password used to access VNC desktops. It stores an obfuscated version of the password in the given file
(default $HOME/.vnc/passwd). The vncserver script runs vncpasswd the first time you start a VNC desktop, and invokes Xvnc with the appro-
priate -rfbauth option. vncviewer can also be given a password file to use via the -passwd option.
The password must be at least six characters long, and only the first eight characters are significant. Note that the stored password is
not encrypted securely - anyone who has access to this file can trivially find out the plaintext password, so vncpasswd always sets appro-
priate permissions (read and write only by the owner). However, when accessing a VNC desktop a challenge-response mechanism is used over
the wire making it hard for anyone to crack the password simply by snooping on the network.
Default location of the VNC password file.
