I am trying to backup a vm which is on our remote site.
We have VPN tunnel.
Does vpn tunnel allow all these ports?

Yes, a VPN tunnel can allow all of those ports.

You just need to ensure they are not blocked by any firewalls between the two networks.

You need to talk to your networking team to confirm if the ports are opened and get them opened if they aren't.
It totally depends on your environment. usually VPN does not block any ports. But if you are hitting any firewalls in between you will have to get ports opened there.

Depends very much on how your VPN is copnfigured?

We've recently found a VPN, which does not pass Port 22 SSH!?
