Be aware any connection will be logged (each connection if the device connects/disconnects 10 times in 20 seconds).

You want to get into the local network (LAN) coming from WAN (via ethernet 0).
I assume your incoming connection (ICMP? UDP? TCP?) from xxx.1.x is probably blocked by RB Firewall.
Disable firewall to see if that is the issue (but be careful what you do :-))

SSL / https breaks if you do not set connection tracking (RP filter) to loose mode.

Or if that is not the case, first try with PCC "source address only" and see if that works.
