Okay then disregard my previous idea about vncpasswd.

As far as I know x11vnc is run by root of the CLIENT not the server. I
*think* it's run as a module of the X server. But I don't really
understand ltsp 5 details all that well.

Good question, not sure if it would even show up as a process on the
client console. It might  just be embedded within X11. No harm
checking. Get to the client console and do some poking with ps.
