Manage the VNC / screen sharing password remotely
Authored by: af3556 on Nov 17, '07 01:50:23AM
I'm the hint's author, and can perhaps clarify slightly: the terminal logs are shown exactly as you'd see them in your terminal window. You need to type the commands after the "$" prompt, and in the case of the command to change the password, the perl script will wait for you to type the new password (in this case, "hello") before echoing to the terminal and updating the VNCSettings file. To exit, type either Ctrl-D or Ctrl-C once you've entered one password. a¿ex's version will also work (and is probably preferred, actually - it's a bit less error-prone).
