Allow this particular web page access on port 443 ONLY

I have https and SSL working on Red Hat 9.

This (internal) test page is visible and working:

But the same page is also visible and working at:

How can I ensure that:
is visible ONLY on port 443 and NOT on port 80

Setup an iptables firewall to block port 80. This can be done for the machine, the network the machine is on, or the whole world. HTTP traffic can still go through, but any services running will be hidden and inaccessable to the outside world. This won't work if you're running a web server, but I doubt that. =)

I can block port 80 with iptables but that will block access to the rest of the HTTP traffic too.

I would prefer that ONLY
not be available on port 80.
And everything else that is already available on port 80 stay visible on port 80.
