RVS4000 VPN connection

Mach03 used Ask the Experts™
I currently have a RVS4000 setup for a small business and everything has been working fine.  I can connect with VPN and remote desktop to any machine, map drives, etc.  However, I recently installed  a RAC card on the server.  If I'm inside the domain I can get to it through https but not if I remote in through VPN then use https.  From the remote node, I can ping the card through VPN, but not see it through port 443/https.  On the ACL, I even added the two http and https requests, even though the default is allow all service from both lan and wan.  Pictured attached.  Btw, is this good to have it all services from both lan and wan open like this?

if you are trying to remote acess from VPN to LAN you need to allow from VPN-LAN port 3389, but if you are trying from WAN to LAN you need to permit two rules

1) WAN to LAN allow HTTPS
2) WAN TO LAN Allow port 3389

its not recomended  to open port 3389 from WAN to LAN.


Thanks for your help Syed.  

No, I"m trying to goto https after I VPN in.  Ya, I don't want to open any more ports to the internet than I have to.   Which brings  me to 2 questions.

1) How do I open a port from  VPN-LAN
2) From the screen shot above (ACL) it look like everything is open, could this be good?
