Open Port 80 On Windows Server 2008 R2

To enable port 80 on Windows Server 2008 R2:
NOTE: This assumes that IIS is not installed. I added this firewall rule to enable Apache to accept connections on port 80.
  1. Click Start->Control Panel->Windows Firewall
  2. Click "Advanced Settings" in the left panel of Windows Firewall
  3. Click "Inbound rules" in the left panel of Advanced Settings
  4. Click "New Rule..." in right "Actions" panel
  5. Select "Port" and click "Next>"
  6. Select "TCP", then "Specific local ports:" (should already be selected)
  7. Type 80 in the box (just the number) and click "Next>"
  8. Select "Allow the connection" and click "Next>"
  9. Leave all profiles checked and click "Next>"
  10. Enter a name and click "Finish".
Your server should now be able to accept connections on port 80.
