I'm trying to connect to a RealVNC server that has been configured to only accept encrypted connections with a cert store and a specific username (different than the username I'm running the program as) and password.  How can I connect to that RealVNC server using a TigerVNC linux client?
Thanks!

Hi,
As far as I know you cannot connect using TigerVNC's viewer to a RealVNC
server using an encrypted connection. RealVNC keeps their security
types secret so there's no way for us to support their authentication
schemes.

The only matching security type that RealVNC support is the unencrypted
"VncAuth".

Regards,
