Windows firewall blocks port connection even it’s allowed

I have setup windows firewall rules to allow port 443 and 9000 to be allowed though inbound and outbound connections, and allowed the apache httpd.exe though the firewall as well. But as shown by my firewall log, you can see that both ports are still being actively dropped. Below I have attached screenshots of my firewall rules for both inbound and outbound, my firewall logs showing the connection being dropped, and my IP configuration on the windows server. Notice that I am using virtual machine to do this, I don’t know if this has anything to do with my firewall blocking allowed connections.
