This should be done only once at first time using VNCserver. Type " vncpasswd " and type in your password. This password will be used to connect to your remote session. If you have set your VNCserver password previously, you don't need to do this again. Now, your remote desktop session is created on Saturn Uranus, Endeavour.

RD connects to a user session. Windows Vista and newer can have multiple users sessions running simultaneously. Older version are fuzzy, but lucky support has ended for anything older so nobody should be running it anymore. RD can also establish a new user session for a user logging in if one does not exist already, and the same user can have multiple sessions under certain circumstances.
