I think you mis-understood his post.

He is saying that the only reason you think it's the "nterm" service at
all is because that's what nmap's services file says it is.  It may or
may not _really_ be "nterm."

The only thing we really do know is that gnome-session is listening on
port 1026 of your machine.  Everything since then has been an assumption.
