as per http://www.realvnc.com/pipermail/vnc-list/2007-May/057614.html

"That message just means that something connected to the VNC Server's HTTP
port and disconnected unexpectedly.

Please note that we do not recommend running VNC Free Edition servers
exposed directly to untrusted networks.  For remote access over untrusted
networks such as the Internet, you should arrange a secure tunnel or for
your VNC Free Edition sessions, or use VNC Enterprise or Personal Edition,
which have in-built session security."

Dear Herr Goebel,

Could you repost German original of your last comment because automatic translation messed it up to non-recognition.

Problem has been solved, the McAfee Rogue Sensor went crazy and was the cause for that problem.

Thanks for the attention.
