Hi all.
I have been hosting my own websites on my own PC for a number of years rather than paying a hosting company.

To do this I use WAMP Server Apache.
With the new web requirement of using SSL for all sites I decided to change my sites to HTTPS.
I reconfigured WAMP, operned port 443 in my firewall and also setup port forwarding on my router for port 443.

Unfortunately I can't reach my sites using HTTPS.
Has anyone come across this problem?

Yes lunerlander I generated one myself.
Once I can access my sites I will look at getting a commercial one.

I used netstat -na | find "80" and it finds that port 80 is listening.
However if I do the same on port 433 it doesn't say it's listening.
I think port 443 needs to be opened.
My firewall has it open and my router is forwarding it ok.
I'm left thinking it's a Windows thing.
