Unable to connect to ESX host on WAN

I have a physical switch with a switch port vlan tag of 203 and switch port mode access configured. Vlan 203 is on network 10.136.5.x

If I connect my laptop to another port on the same switch on the same vlan 203 I can reach the VM host fine via browser and VMware Client software.

I can ping the ESX host fine locally and remotely across the IPSEC VPN.

However when I try to connect to it remotely I get a timeout.

The ESX left hand storage servers connection is via the management port which seems to fail.

Tried setting a vlan to '0' and 203 but I luck.

If I can ping fine to host is it am issue with VPN router or ESX configuration.
