I am trying to configure ACL for remote location, accessing one of application on specific port. At remote side they have created a VLAN (e.g. 11.1.x.x) and at main office inside VLAN is 11.2.x.x. I have added route(ip of remote router) to pix and applied this ACL to the outside interface. But the remote user is unable to access application.

For example:

access-list inside_acl host eq 23678

where,> remote network> server/host at main office

I am confused whether to apply this acl to Inside interface or Outside interface.

You need to apply this on the outside interface of your pix in the inbound direction as the user is in the remote office and is sending traffic to your vlan.

Be aware that there is an implict deny at the end of each access-list so if you apply that access-list as is it will only allow port 23768 from vlan 11.1.x.x through.

Create it as a Extended permit, it should work.

access-list 100 extended permit tcp eq 2000

and put it as on interface as a Outbound.
