To get rid of those "0/0" null-restriction from outer space, I'm afraid, there's no way than that suggestion of Mark Ruth, though.

You have a nerve [0/0]. Is pretty insecure. Guess would be easy to sniff the vnc
password and every guy with some ambitions will move the mouse only you
should move remotly.

But sniffing could happen even if I replace 0/0 with something (much) more specific, couldn't it?
The ssh-suggestion by Markus Gaugusch would prevent it, I guess (have to play with it yet).
