And finally, from their own web site:

         Should you believe it necessary to prevent the GoToMyPC
         service from accessing your company computers,
         simply block access to the host poll.gotomypc.com.
         This will prevent anyone from starting a connection to access any
         computer inside your firewall.



Name:    poll.gotomypc.com
Address:  63.251.224.177


Thanks,

Has anybody dealt with the services from https://www.gotomypc.com it
seems to allow end users to completely circumvent an existing network
security infrastructure.

The user signs up with gotomypc and establishes a out bound connection
through the firewall to a go to my pc server, then there server listens
for a connection that is connected to your internal network
and the scariest thing is that the listining ports for inbound
connections are on a gotomypcserver so how would you even audit?.
