I'm assuming you're talking about the Firewall... To open a port on the firewall you can either use the GUI or use Powershell.

This Powershell command should open port 443 (SSL):

Import-Module NetSecurity <enter>
New-NetFirewallRule -DisplayName "Allow Port 443 (SSL)" -Direction Inbound -LocalPort 443 -Protocol TCP -Action Allow <enter>

Open in new window

After that you can check with netstat if the port is listening:

netstat -an 

Open in new window

Check if you see port 443 in LISTENING mode
