For service connections, you must have a physical connection to SAP (ISDN, VPN, SNC, and so on). See also Note 35010; this note contains all the relevant information about this.
All service connections between your system and SAP are established through your SAProuter. Therefore, to prevent any unauthorized access to your system, a connection must ALWAYS be established from the customer system (a physical connection from SAP is not possible).
