Can't access web server externally

Yeah I can ping and portqry (similar to a telnet test to see if port is being blocked, is listening or not listening) to port 443 and 80 of my host webserver04 internally and the page comes up, but externally it doesn't work, it says Not Listening and the page doesn't come up.  I have the exact same firewall rules for my other web server and it works just fine, it says Listening and the webpage comes up.

When I block (on the firewall) 443 or 80 to webserver04 and again try to port query externally, it says Filtered (blocked by the firewall) as it should and of course the page doesn't come up.  Then when I open those ports back up and try again it says Not Listening...  Telnet to port 443 & 80 also fails of course.  The funny thing is I open up icmp to the box and it pings it just fine.

Well, I hope this makes sense and that there's someone out there that can help.
