HTTP 403 when connecting to administration page of Cisco 3005

We recently copied the configuration of one Cisco 3005 to another, for a migration/move of the Internet connection.  VPN connections into the new 3005 work, but if I connect to the external IP address of the 3005, I get an http 403 error - "you are not authorized to view this page (forbidden)".

If I create a tunnel, and connect to the internal IP address, it works fine.  I've checked Administration->Access Rights->Access Control List, and the list is empty.  External connections to the old 3005 always worked fine.  Any thoughts?

I'm presuming that the external WAN address is different?.

If connected via a VPN, the connection will appear to come from the same internal source, whereas external connections will be via an external interface ip.

I'm guessing that the admin page has an 'accept connections on this ip interface or similar'?

I never thought to look at the interface configuration.  That did it.  Thanks!
