When you VNC into a machine, does that machine lock itself so othres cannot see it since you are remotely connected to it, or can a person see the screen when you VNCinto it?

When you connect With VNC by default it does not lock the screen as it does when you RDP into a machine.  There is however in most versions an option to make the screen go black so that others cannot see what is happening.

Hope this helps,
Oli
