  Right.  Thats your problem then.

  You could use ssh port-forwarding to forward the connection from the
 remote host to the local machine, then connect to that securely as

  [remote machine]
    xm create ...

  [local machine]
    [setup forward to remote]
    ssh -L 5900:localhost:5900 -N username@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    [start viewer]

  (This might be too much complexity; but it is preferable to having
 VNC listening on a public-facing machine with no password/firewall/ACL
 in the way ..)
