See below - in response to your post and others.

Why are you replying to your own mail?

Using a web server is NOT a port scan - in any manner. 

A portscan makes a connect(), a web browser makes a connect(). Please

*public* internet addressing does not mean *public access*

Of course it does mean exactly that, unless authentication of some sort
is required.
