You need to allow it in the firewall.  The config for it looks like this;

  <rule>
   <type>pass</type>
   <interface>wan</interface>
   <protocol>tcp</protocol>
   <source>
    <any/>
   </source>
   <destination>
    <any/>
    <port>443</port>
   </destination>
   <descr>Allow remote admin</descr>
  </rule>
