Not seeing it on any of the five graphics.

"Hangups or error" a good thing or a bad thing. The VNC server,
which I could log into before, stopped working after running
the exploit against it. (Its port 5900 TCP closed off to
nmap too.) And suddenly a ton of ports open up when running

# nmap ?script vnc-brute.nse

I have tried posting that too, but the idiot gatekeeper robot
won't let it through.

I pressed "enter" after the command and then nothing.
