Need help with ACL to restrict VPN traffic

Unanswered Question

I don't know if this question is best asked in the VPN forum or here. Thanks in advance for any help offered.

I have a client that is using a PIX for remote user VPN clients. They would like to restrict a VPN client to accessing a single host ( over a single TCP port (9000). The PIX by default allows all encrypted traffic to bypass the access-lists (more accurately, the PIX uses ACLs only to determine what traffic should be encrypted).

So how to restrict the client to only accessing TCP9000? There is a Catalyst 3560 layer 2 switch on the interior network. I can create an ACL to restrict traffic between the remote VPN network ( /24) and the interior host ( When I apply this to the inbound traffic on the server VLAN, it kills all traffic:

switch1(config)# access-list 102 permit tcp eq 9000

switch1(config)# access-list 102 deny ip

switch1(config)# access-list 102 permit ip any any

switch1(config)# int vlan6 (this the vlan the host is in)

switch1(config-if)# access-group 102 in

Is this correct? Applying this seems to kill all traffic on that VLAN. What is the correct way to do this?

If is the server the users on the network are accessing on TCP port 9000 then reconfigure the access list 102 as follows and try.

access-list 102 permit tcp eq 9000

access-list 102 deny ip

access-list 102 permit ip any any
