I would use http://www.vncscan.com to deploy VNC using the UltraVNC
encryption plug-in if I where you.  It acts the same as an SSH tunnel
except that you don't need to install an SSH server on every PC.

VNC sessions are not encryted.

Try tunneling the traffic through a ssh session or a VPN connection and
you should be good.

First off, sorry Simon.  I ment to send this to the list but sent it 
to only you instead.

Now, on to my real question.

I'm looking to use VNC on my windows machine for remote logins.  
Currently I only have the following open ports:

25/tcp   open   smtp
80/tcp   open   http
113/tcp  closed auth
1352/tcp open   lotusnotes
5902/tcp open   vnc-2
5903/tcp open   vnc-3
8080/tcp open   http-proxy

Are there any security problems that I may be over looking by using 
VNC on my machine?

Regards,

JL
