Which access rule is applied

Hello everyone,

I'm currently working on the access rules for the Sonicwall. Unfortunately I am very confused. I have created two access rules (see Appendix). The first allows network traffic from a specific network called "NI_EDV" to the LAN interface using the SSLVPN service. The second blocks all further traffic. According to my logic, the SSLVPN connection should be allowed from the specified network "NI_EDV". However, it is always blocked by rule number 2. What is my mistake? Aren't the rules processed in order of "priority"?

    @public_sector_admin did you enabled "Allow Management Traffic" on the Optional tab for your Access Rule #1? This has to be done for all Services provided by the Firewall itself.

    Grüße in den Public Sector.
