VNC. Problem is, the system is firewalled and I can't get the server >to
download any tools. Suggestions anyone.

Does the firewall do any packet inspection at all? Is the web server being
fed by a reverse-proxy? Is the web server using both 80 and 443?

If you answered no to all of the above, park a netcat listener on
443 and grab a shell first. Does the firewall allow the web server
to make any outbound connections at all? If not, craft some html on
the web server to allow file uploading.

I was in a situation similar to this, but ended up not having to
craft the html because I could get the web server to (t)ftp outbound
and suck files up.

Good luck.
