What is an appropriate windows vnc client to access a fedora shared desktop?

I have fedora 31 installed and am attempting to access a shared desktop from a windows machine. I have tried tightvnc 2.8.27 and tigervnc 1.9.90 and realvnc 6.19.923.

When I try to connect, each of them gives me an error about security types.

Can anybody recommend an appropriate windows vnc viewer client?

Alternatively is there is a way to disable the encryption requirement? My intention currently is to access via an SSH tunnel, so encryption within the VNC connection itself is not strictly necessary.

thank you! For me, just the first command gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.remote-desktop.vnc encryption "['none']" was necessary
