Just in case anyone else stumbles upon this ...
My server is Ubuntu 11.10x64 & I'm using VIM 7.3. When I am connected locally using gnome-terminal I have 256 color support in VIM. When I connect remotely, I only have 16 color support. The terminal type is XTerm.

I found the solution to my problem on the following link:
http://vim.wikia.com/wiki/256_colors_in_vim

Adding the following line into my .vimrc added support for 256 colors over a remote XTerm session: set t_Co=256
