Windows firewall issue with port 443

I am trying to telnet to my server on port 443.

I have a utility listening on port 443.

I have an Inbound windows firewall rule allowing traffic on port 443.

I also have other inbound firewall rules on other ports.

I can successfully telnet on my other ports.

I get no response when I try to telnet on port 443.

I turn off the windows firewall and then I get a response on port 443.

Any idea what would be causing windows firewall to block port 443 even though there is a firewall inbound rule allowing it?

Thanks, Kevin.

Even though there was an inbound rule for port 443 already in the firewall (World Wide Web Service (HTTPS traffic in))
I still had to create another inbound 443 rule and then it worked.

On my computer, port 443 is opened for Secure Web Server Access (HTTPS).  Telnet does not do 'HTTPS' so maybe that is why.

It was not the protocol that was the issue it was merely the port.

Telnet works fine to just let you know that port 443 is listening.

I just successfully tried it on Windows 8 and Mac OSX.
