404 server not found exception when working with jira instance of type http://machinename:port

The below code is working fine for JIRA machine having of type https://machinename
but the same code is throwing 404 server not found exception in response when I use a different JIRA machine of url  http://machinename and when I checked for the same in Mozilla rest client for post request it throws 403 forbidden error.
What changes do I need to do for the url's starting from http:// . Kindly let me know
Below is the code
string Url ="https://jiraasp.atlassian.net/rest/api/latest/issue/";
string base64Credentials = GetEncodedCredentials();         
HttpWebResponse response = null;
 HttpWebRequest request = WebRequest.Create(Url) as HttpWebRequest;
       request.ContentType ="application/json";
       request.MediaType ="application/json";
       request.Accept ="application/json";
       request.Method ="POST"; 
  request.Headers.Add("Authorization", "Basic " + base64Credentials);
byte[] data = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(objJIRAData.JsonString);
using (var requestStream = request.GetRequestStream())            {
                requestStream.Write(data, 0, data.Length);
using (response = request.GetResponse() as HttpWebResponse)
if (response.StatusCode != HttpStatusCode.OK)
var reader = new StreamReader(response.GetResponseStream());
                    status = response.StatusCode.ToString();
string str = reader.ReadToEnd();
Console.WriteLine("The server returned '{0}'\n{1}", response.StatusCode, str);
var jss = new System.Web.Script.Serialization.JavaScriptSerializer();
var sData = jss.Deserialize<Dictionary<string, string>>(str);
                    JiraKeyValue = sData["key"].ToString();

First, check if the machine is even listening on http.  What do you get when you visit it with a browser?
