I've got a headless Mac server running 10.4.something. I had a monitor attached to it for long enough to enable ssh and vnc access, and I was administering it through vnc from one of my other computers. That computer recently suffered a hard disk crash and I realized I don't remember the vnc access password.

However, I do know the password to log in as an admin user via ssh. That should be enough to do almost anything, right? Is there a way to change the vnc access password from the command line?

G4 tower, Mac OS X (10.4.9)
