Oddly enough, it says "Connecting to 111.222.333.444:5,900" that comma
doesn't quite seem right....

Try openeing 5901 as well.
A VNC Server on a Windows PC will listen on port 5900, while the first
VNC instance on a Linux server will listen on port 5901, the second on
port 5902, etc.
You can check with nmap what ports the drac listens to as well.
Command: nmap <RAC-IP-Add>
Should give you something like:
Starting nmap 3.70 ( http://www.insecure.org/nmap/ ) at 2006-04-04 11:44
Interesting ports on IP-Addr:
(The 1655 ports scanned but not shown below are in state: closed)
PORT STATE SERVICE
38/tcp filtered rap
80/tcp open http
443/tcp open https
5900/tcp open vnc
5901/tcp open vnc-1
