How to access public IP of router which is NATted to IIS server

Hi experts,

I have a static ip from my ISP that I had to translate to my IIS server so that the users from the net can access the mail server in the LAN. It is working fine until now that I need to set up an SSL VPN which requires access to the public IP. Since it is translating to the ISS server's IP, the users get to the ISS server when they type https://WAN IP instead of the logon page to get SSL certificate. I am using RV220W ver 1.0.4.17 and I can't get this to work for the life of me.
I know there are a few forums/blogs about the difficulty in setting up VPN (QuickVPN and SSL) on RV220W but they have not helped me in any way so any help from you experts will be much appreciated.

Thanks

When you use https://<whatever> without specifying port it goes on port 443.  You  need to set up your router for remote management to listen on another port other than 443, like 8443, and you can access it using https://WAN-IP:8443.

SSL VPN doesn't necessarily mean you access anything through your web browser though.  It just means you're using signed certificates to authenticate to the VPN server.  I don't have an RV220W but OpenVPN, for example, is an SSL VPN system and it defaults to port 1194.

Thank you for your answer bigbigpig (interesting username). I overlooked the point of listening/using a different point. I used a different port and pointed to that as suggested and now SSL VPN is available without going direct to the ISS server.
