Status is just showing VNC



Hello List,

A client of mine has a Mac Mini located in a hosting centre, so it has a public IP. But I keep seeing the status of this MacMini as VNC On. And nothing more. I can just observe and control, but I'm unable to use ARD as I'm using it on my local LAN. 

The Mac Mini is running Mac OS X 10.4.8, FW is enabled, and in the FW I created a separate rule set which allows the following ports: TCP: 3283, 5900, 5988, UDP: 3283 and 5900 to be open, But to no avail. Is there someone who recognises this problem? And knows the solution? Or is it just not possible? 

For your info: 

The command ipfw list gives me the following result:

02000 allow ip from any to any via lo*
02010 deny ip from 127.0.0.0/8 to any in
02020 deny ip from any to 127.0.0.0/8 in
02030 deny ip from 224.0.0.0/3 to any in
02040 deny tcp from any to 224.0.0.0/3 in
02050 allow tcp from any to any out
02060 allow tcp from any to any established
02070 allow tcp from any to any dst-port 3283 in
02080 allow tcp from any to any dst-port 5900 in

02100 allow tcp from any to any dst-port 3283 in
02110 allow tcp from any to any dst-port 5900 in
02120 allow tcp from any to any dst-port 5988 in
02130 allow tcp from any to any dst-port 80 in
02140 allow tcp from any to any dst-port 427 in
