Enable incoming traffic on HTTPS/Port 443 on Windows Server 2012 R2

Hi all,

I'm trying to set up an application that uses HTTPS (port 443) on a Windows Server 2012 R2. I do not want to install IIS on the server.
When I test the connection (from outside the network) I can't seem to get through the Windows Firewall. I have tried to add a rule (TCP, 443) - but no luck. When I turn off the Windows Firewall there is no problem.

I have also installed a SSL Certificate on the server.

I have also Googled a lot - but did not find the answer.

Any chance somebody in here can help me out how to enable HTTPS on the server without IIS nor without turning off the Windows Firewall?

Thanks!
