How to fix unable to connect to VNC Server using your chosen security setting ?
As mentioned earlier, this error generally happens due to incompatible encryption settings between VNC Viewer and VNC Server.
To try to fix this error is to change the VNC Server Encryption parameter to something other than AlwaysOff on the remote computer.
Then, they try to change the VNC Viewer Encryption parameter to Server, PreferOn or PreferOff.
As the alternate cause for this error would be the version of the VNC server, they also ensure that the latest version of VNC Connect is installed on the remote computer.
If not, they upgrade VNC Server to a more recent version.
A not much-recommended method to fix the error is to weaker the level of encryption.
