enable Pi VNC access on internet

1. install tightVNC on Pi
sudo apt-get install tightvncserver

2. install peer-vnc on Pi
2.1 curl | bash
2.2 then, install peer-vnc service: npm install peer-vnc

3. start VNC server. notes: the first vncserver will listen on 5901, second will be 5902

4. start peer-vnc service: cd node_modules/peer-vnc, then ./bin/peer-vnc -t localhost:5901 -s acl (in case the first vncserver)
console dump like below:
$ ./bin/peer-vnc -t localhost:5901 -s acl
VNC Proxy URL(please open it on browser)
localhost:5901 ... lhost-5901

5. open URL (like above ... lhost-5901) in web browser and enter your VNC password, now you can VNC access Pi from everywhere.
