I Use TightVNC to connect to client PCs on our network.  However, when I try to connect to a W7 machine, I get a message saying Connection closed as soon as i type in the password.  Is there a secruity feature in W7 that I need to enable/disable?

Seems to be a trust issue with W7. I wouldn't go as far as saying its UAC controls. Make sure all firewall settings are allowing that connection to remain. Also i found this might be a simple up grade to the newest client/server to support w7. Second paragraph http://www.tightvnc.com/whatsnew.php
