10.5: Disable Screen Sharing's 'no encryption' warning
Authored by: leamanc on Feb 10, '09 07:59:45AM
It is a really bad idea to just allow TCP port 5900 be unencrypted for all to see. That warning is there for a reason.
I would guess the hint submitter, like myself and many others, are connecting to these VNC servers on a LAN, behind a router, and the machines aren't exposed to the Internet. If the rest of your network is secure, there's not much to worry about.
