Firewall blocking SSMS connection

I'm having trouble connecting to a SQL server with SSMS over VPN.

  • I have several VPN connections I can connect to for servicing remote sites.  Only one remote SQL server is exhibiting the problem.
  • With the remote server Windows Firewall OFF, I can connect to the server with SSMS.
  • With the remote server Windows Firewall ON, I can ping the server but cannot connect with SSMS.
  • I have verified the listening port on the remote server.

  • I have created an inbound firewall rule to open Port 1433 on the remote server:

What am I missing?
