    there's only one way my friend.....

    p.s. I can't answer 'why/how the ports would refuse to open' beyond 'misconfiguration' which is so obvious it's really no answer at all.

    but I can show how i fixed it - thanks to clues i found on the web - and the answer then becomes 'because this hasn't been done'.

    and 'this' is having iis listen on 'add_iplisten'.

    using netsh http

    and then iisreset.

    I was totally unaware of the netsh http tool. glad to know about it now. i'll help others by directing them to it.
