Yes you are correct. This needs to be run from a UNIX compatible system. Cygwin/Linux/MacOS

I ran python and I get following warning:
WARNING: can't open config file: c:/openssl-1.0.2l-win64/ssl/openssl.cnf Unable to load config info from c:/openssl-1.0.2l-win64/ssl/openssl.cnf Traceback (most recent call last): File "", line 16, in <module> httpd = BaseHTTPServer.HTTPServer( ( '', 4443 ), SimpleHTTPServer.SimpleHTTPRequestHandler ) NameError: name 'BaseHTTPServer' is not defined

Do I still need to set up something?

You need to run this in a Docker Container or a Unix system like Linux/MacOS.
