ssl connection returns nothing: HTTP_CODE 000

I have successfully setup cURL on RH6.2. Here are the details:
curl 6.5.2 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) libcurl 6.5.2 (SSL 0.9.5)

I can hit SSL enabled sites and receive the pages back, however when I hit
my site I receive nothing after the ssl connection is made.

For example, the following command:
        curl -v -S -w %{http_code} -3 -A Mozilla/4.0 <>
only returns this:
                * SSL connection using DES-CBC3-SHA
                * Server certificate:
                * subject: /C=US/ST=Oregon/L=Portland/O=PG&E Gas
Transmission-Northwest/OU=Information Technology/
                * issuer: /C=ZA/ST=Western Cape/L=Cape Town/O=Thawte
Consulting cc/OU=Certification Services Division/CN=Thawte Server
                * Connected to (
> GET /home.html HTTP/1.0
                User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0
                Pragma: no-cache
                Accept: image/gif, image/x-xbitmap, image/jpeg, image/pjpeg,

Am I missing a command line argument? If not, could this be an openSSL
problem? I'm receiving similar problems from lynx-ssl, complied with the
same openSSL libraries.
