How to Change a TightVNC Password

TightVNC is a small software program that allows users to view and control other computers on the Internet. Setup is fast, and you do not need to be a systems administrator to install it. The software consists of a server component and a client component. When you install the server, you have the option to choose a password. Remote users must enter this password to connect to your computer. Using TightVNC’s administration panel, you can change that password without reinstalling the software.
