the error message you have given clearly states what is wrong *and* tells you how to fix it.

One thing though is that it's saying it is for display 0, which would probably be your local X server, how are you trying to use vncserver.

the password is asked for when there is no default set.

It seems that you can revise the password with the following command:
#vncpasswd
