When trying to connect to a VNC server (vnc4server, version 4.1.1+xorg1.0.2-0ubuntu7). vncviewer logs the following:
$vncviewer -log *:stdout:100 10.8.0.1:0

I've also tried connecting to a VNC server created with x11vnc and I got the same result.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Try to connect to a VNC server with vncviewer
vncviewer displays the error: "Security type not supported"
Display of a remote window.
I have the same problem connecting to x11vnc with tigervnc-1.0.1_p2010052.
You can add
as an argument to tigervnc as a workaround.
same here with tigervnc-1.0.1_p2010052-r2
googling, I found out that it's not a gentoo bug : see
if I understood it well, SecurityTypes is mandatory if server offers more than one type, and can be one of VncAuth,TLSNone,None.
Correct. Its a problem in the software itself, not something we can fix. So blame upstream
