When configuring firewall rules on the vShield edge appliance, it is important to understand how it hangs, see this diagram on the 2 interfaces, and how rules work and in which direction.

Login into vCenter, click on HOME and click on the vShield edge icon, login with admin details

Login to the EDGE, and select the network on the left, and the VLAN where the edge is deployed.

Here is a working LIVE rule showing HTTP, HTTPS, DNS and SMTP Internal / Inbound

RDP and HTTPS External / Inbound


Don't forget to also configure a DNAT rule, as it wont work without it.
