SSL biderectional traffic using ports 443 and 4443

Posted on 2009-02-23

I need to verify that I allow SSL Bidirectional traffic on ports 443 and 4443 on my Pix 515E Firewall because I am being denied access to a website that requires those ports open. Can someone please tell me what kind of statement I should configure or look for in my Pix?

    Hello Dfig,
        An Access List bound to facing interface at inbound direction is enough to achieve what you want. But here are some other concerns
       ASDM access also uses port 443, so you have to change ASDM port if! you have ASDM access allowed to outside.
       And you need port forwarding like following
    static(inside,outside) tcp "globalip" 443 "localserverip" 443
