The details look like follows:

I've tried every possible VNC client to connect it, but I couldn't find anywhere where I can specify the username.

The only client which does work is Java VNC Viewer Enterprise Edition E4.2.6 (RealVNC). I've already tried:

They all doesn't work. Any clues?

As far as I know, a username prompt isn't part of the standard VNC protocol, I think it's offered as a feature in RealVNC's paid desktop client as well but I'm not sure of compatibility without knowing the KVM manufacturer – Stephanie Jun 20 '12 at 17:46

Under Linux, Vinagre works flawlessly, if user name & password input is wanted on the other Linux. I recommend this only on Linux.

I tried: Real VNC, TightVNC, UltraVNC, TigerVNC and EchoVNC. I was unable to configure any of them for accepting a user name and password. (Probably you too.)

Hope this is usefull.
