Open ports 80 and 443 on windows 7.

I checked my ports being open according to  this:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Q_28636773.html#a40667128


It showed my ports 80 and 443 being blocked.  So I disabled my firewall (Symantec endpoint protection) but it they still show as blocked.  How can I open these on windows 7?  I need to used it for the Qliksense management console.

Do you have windows firewall running?

Matthew KellyCommented:
When you disable a third party antivirus or firewall, Windows Firewall takes over.

So you will need to open those ports in Windows Firewall as well: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/open-port-windows-firewall#1TC=windows-7

Windows firewall still shows as disabled even after disabling.  I added the inbound rule to open 80 and 443.  Still showing as blocked.

When you say "disabled" do you mean the Windows Firewall service is disabled or it is just turned off? If disabled Windows blocks everything.

Try leaving Windows Firewall on, with port 80 and 443 open.

Ports only really show as being 'open' for inbound traffic if there is a program listening on those ports.  Port 80 is normally used for a web server and port 443 is use for a web server with SLL/TLS security.

So the firewall shows as disabled.  However, I can't enable it seems.  Is there a way to open the port from Symantec Endpoint protection?

I am not sure what version you have, but generally go to Firewall, and then "Rules" and then "Add Rule".

As well as all the above (very good) points, are you sure that it is not something outside you Windows machine that might be blocking the ports? ie. it is common these days to be connecting to the Internet via some soft of ADSL modem, etc. If that is the case for you, the modem is the device that is directly connected to the Internet and your Windows machine sits in a local network behind it... the modem is in a way another firewall between your machine and the wide world.

If the above is the case, you will need to configure your modem to correct "Port Forward" traffic from ports 80 and 443 through to the IP address that your Windows machine has.

I'm connecting through a work switch/router/modem (it's fiber optic ISP).  It's locked down.  However, I have run machine's as web application servers both (both HTTP and HTTPS) just fine on the setup.  So it's very possible it's not the ports at all.  I was just trying to diagnose through elimination of possibilities.
