You may not need to turn off the firewall, but any and all firewalls 
will need to allow port 443 in and outbound. And if you're behind a 
NAT gateway, the gateway will need to forward port 443 from the 
public  IP address to the private IP address the computer running apache is on.

You SHOULD, regardless, on the machine running apache, be able to 
browse to http://localhost:443 regardless of the firewall. - Note 
SHOULD, some firewalls are so strict you can't.
