You need to change the virtual screen assignment to be unique for each connection. That's set in the server, then when you connect with VNC, you specify the logical screen. You'll have to open more ports, because the logical screens each use a unique port.

Screen 0 - 5900
Screen 1 - 5901
Screen 2 - 5902
etc.

In the HOST name field you type in name:number.

name is the name of the remote computer.
number is the screen number from 0 through 9.

This is spelled out right on the client page next to the name box.
