Help Getting ANSI Working Correctly

I'm trying to get ANSI support working correctly with the following scenario.
I've got an Ubuntu 11.10 server running where I do most of my work. I do a lot of work in VIM.

VIM colorschemes typically make use of 256 colors. They're listed here:
http://vim.wikia.com/wiki/Xterm256_c...or_console_Vim

So, I've built a profile in SecureCRT that connects to my server using XTerm as the terminal type with ANSI enabled. The default VIM colorscheme only uses 16 colors and they display correctly. However, as soon as I attempt to use a colorscheme that branches out past those basic 16 colors, I don't see them anymore.

I see in SecureCRT itself in the ANSI tab that there are only 16 colors I can configure in the GUI.

I tried setting my term-type to xterm-color and xterm-256color with no luck, same problems.

Will SecureCRT not support more than 16 colors? I really hope that's not the case, I really like SecureCRT, but I'd like 256 color support.

If it was possible to create a file that specified the RBG codes to be used for specific colors (rather than doing this through the GUI) that would be much better as well.
