This is my first time configuring Out of Band management and I need some assistant. I've spent hours searching forums, but something is still not clicking. I can't not access the web console on port 16993 which ConfigMgr\SCCM is requiring. I'm under the impression if HTTP works, then HTTPS should just work as well. Here are the most recent steps I have been trying.

Verification steps taken on the ConfigMgr server
Verify I can browse http;//<computer fqdn>:16992. This works successfully. I'm able to login and browse around the different hardware information.
Verify I can browse https://<computer fqdn>:16993
This is where it fails. I get page cannot be displayed using 16993.
Ping <computer fqdn> and verify LAN IP is returned along with replies.
Telnet <computer fqdn> 16993 which fails
Ran netstat -a on the client. 16992 is listed. 16993 is not.
