Vista: Windows Firewall and Windows Security Center discord

Just trying to figure out why I can’t connect to my webserver running on a non-standard port on my PC. Obvious place to look first is Windows Firewall right?
 
Control panel-> Security center shows:
 
Firewall off! Can’t be that then. So I go and investigate all the less obvious things only to happen to try control panel->Firewall (note firewall this time not security center) only to find the opposite message – firewall is on!

 
This won’t help anyone because no one will find this article unless they’ve already found the answer – still a problem shared….
