I have set up a xen server with two guest domains to toy around with and to learn on. I am having issues with user passwords when logging into the guest domains using VNC.

If I log into any domain with vnc from my laptop(I have tried tighten and real VNC) it rejects the password. If I use a vnc client from my galaxy s5 the password is accepted. at the moment I will log into the terminal with the phone and then open up a vnc session from the laptop to the same display. If I type the password in the terminal on the laptop in clear text it shows correct but is still rejected. I am stumped on how to fault find this. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
