Opening Port 443 on the server

Opening Port 443 on the server

Opening Port 443 on the server

I created a rule to open port 443 on a server but the port appear not open. I can neither telnet to it (telnet 443) nor is it listed as a listening port when I run the netstat -an.

What else do I need to do?

Never underestimate the power of human stupidity

RE: Opening Port 443 on the server

You opened the port in Windows Firewall, correct? That would allow traffic *if* there's a service or an application running that *listens* on that port. On a side note, I am assuming that port is TCP, so the firewall rule must match there as well.
