On the server, go to Start -> Run and run winipcfg .  Look at the numbers
for the Default Gateway.  If it starts with 192.168, your Modem is most
likely configured as a NAT router.  If it is you need to configure it to
forward the VNC ports to your server.

You can get the manual for your 4100 in the "Siemens CPE Knowledge Base"
link on the page below:
