"Welcome to GoToMyVNC's service scan.
This webservice will run a quick script to see if it can detect any
machines on your LAN that are accepting VNC connections from the "real
world". It checks the first ten Displays only, 0 thru 9.
Don't worry: a real VNC session is not initiated. This just checks to
see if your firewall/router/gateway rules are all groovy."
Lesson: google first, ask questions later;)
