VPN and open ports

Hi I have created a L2L vpn between my network and a vendor. On the VPN concentrator I am only allowing them to see 2 IP addresses which they can ping just fine, however they need to get to a specific port 4000 and I am not sure why they cannot see it. The server they are connecting to is a unix server and doing a netstat I can see the server is listening on that port but the vendor cannot get to it.


Here is the setup:




(Server)--------(Cisco 6509)----------(Cisco 4000 router)---------(VPN 3030)--------(L2L over Internet)---------------------(vendor's VPN 3030)

The cisco 4000 router has no ACLs so would I have to modify an access-list on the 6509 to allow access to that port?

Thanks

If they can ping the server's IP address then they should be able to access any port.
Ping response takes routing issues out of the problem.
Any access-lists on the C6509?
