I have been having this problem of my ports not opening. These ports specifically are 80 & 443. The problem has been troubling me for some time, where it is disrupting one of my programs to function properly. I have searched on the internet to find a solution by myself, but nothing has worked to open the ports. I have read tutorials, and forwarding ports in my router and still nothing. However, I think it was me on ticking a setting and it closed my ports, but I have no idea what it was, or how to undo the process. I checked the ports on www.canyouseeme.org to see if I opened the ports and even tried to open ports through the Windows firewall and still nothing. The only thing I haven't done is check with my ISP if they have blocked the ports, but I don't think that would be the case, as I went through 2 ISPs in the last six months and it has happened on both of them. So, finally after sometime, I decided to get help from this site as this site helped me get rid of the happli virus that was plaguing my system.

Port 80 is HTTP and Port 443 is HTTPS. If your browsing the internet than they aren't blocking the ports.
