VPN help: SMTP/RDP traffic

Is it possible to allow traffic to come into the WAN port from an unencrypted source (such as SMTP or RDP to our server from the Internet), as well as from an encrypted source (SMTP/RDP from a client on the remote side of a LAN-to-LAN VPN).

Our router is allowing SMTP from the Internet. VPN tunnel is up and passing all traffic except where we have NAT statements that redirect traffic from the Internet to the SMTP server.

Pertinent code snips:

NAT statement for general inbound SMTP:

ip nat inside source static tcp 25 (public ip) 25 extendable

ACL line of access list on WAN port:

access-list 150 permit tcp any host (public ip) eq smtp

Access list for traffic LAN-to-LAN

access-list 103 permit ip

What else is needed to pass SMTP LAN-to-LAN?

Thank you.


Re: VPN help: SMTP/RDP traffic

This document addresses and provides a solution to the problem of why a successfully established IPsec tunnel from a Cisco VPN Client to a PIX is unable to pass data.
