If you are not running a firewall you have to create and apply a new "contivity interface filter"

Check your public interface to see what filter it is currently running. It's most likely "default-contivity filter" which only allows inbound IPSEC. You can create and edit filters I believe under: profiles -> filters. just copy the default filter and allow port 443 on top.

by default the contivity boxes are secured by contivity interface filters which are much like cisco access-lists. If you bought additional firewall license you have a stateful firewall running on your box.

If you have the firewall look under services -> FIREWALL/NAT

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

If you have the Stateful firewall installed there should be a button in FIREWALL>NAT page which will launch a gui tool. Here you can create hosts/networks and insert rules as needed: Make the rule something like.....

Action: PERMIT
source: ANY
destination: "your HTTPS server host"
destination port: 443 or HTTPS

and you can leave other parameters at "ANY." You may have to create custom objects on your own during this process like your server.....  Make sure to put this rule in at the top of your list.
____________________________

If your box is running the "interface filter" instead of the stateful firewall you need to edit your default interface filter.....

you do this in PROFILES>FILTERS

select "Deny All" filter from the Contivity Interface Filters sections. You can edit this default rule and insert a similar rule to the above. You'll have to go through various pages to create new host etc..... remember when you create a host here with a specified IP address use wildcard bits instead of subnet mask. (eg.... host 1.1.1.1/0.0.0.0). Again after you create the rule make sure the rule appears on the very top of the "deny all" filter.

i don't specifically recall the details of the GUI interface but your should create a specific rule. Implied rules should have some default rules that allows normal ipsec functionality of the box(probably not a good idea to touch these rules).
