What operating system you have on this server ?

Sim Card (3G/4G Dongles) use shared public IP's so you can't have direct connections into them to sue RDP, VPN, SMTP, Web, etc (we found this out when a client removed his internet landline and tried to run his email server on a 4G dongle).

You'd need some sort of 3rd party remote control software to be able to access it remotely - something like Teamviewer, GoToAssist, etc that you can setup as a service to allow you to dial into it.

If the issue is how to identify the public IP when it is dynamic, inexpensive services such as DynDns.org can resolve that.

Normally, mobile operators will restrict the usage in the use case of a server as it is very likely that your server will lead to network congestion for other customers.

For example, the WIRELESS CUSTOMER AGREEMENT of AT&T reads as follows:-

AT&T's wireless data services may not be used in any manner that has the effect of excessively contributing to network congestion, hindering other customers' access to the network, or degrading network performance by maintaining a sustained and continuous wireless data service connection or active wireless Internet connection. For example, this includes, but is not limited to, server devices or host computer applications such as continuous Web camera posts or broadcasts, automatic data feeds, or automated machine-to-machine connections; "auto-responders," "cancel-bots," or similar automated or manual routines that generate excessive amounts of traffic or that disrupt user groups or email use by others; use of the service as a substitute or backup for private lines or full-time or dedicated data connections; peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing services; and software or other devices that maintain continuous active Internet connections when a connection would otherwise be idle or any "keep alive" functions, unless they adhere to AT&T data retry requirements (as may be modified from time to time).

In short, you need to contact the mobile operator and pay for a high fee for data retry requirements so as to remove the restriction. But, if your 3G/4G subscription is billed on a flat rate, your mobile operator will NOT entertain you for sure, Besides, I do not think that you can get passed the restriction from your mobile operator and  such discussions are prohibited in this forum.
