Kevin -
    Thanks for picking up on that. I thought it strange as well.
According to my documentation for this version of cURL the "-k" is "-k
--insecure" - Allow connections to SSL sites without certs.
This will get accomplished.
Thanks Kevin.

        That's more like it. If it can't even resolve the host, then
you're not going
        to get any output. Try substituting the IP address of the host
for the host
        name in the URL and see if you can get around what looks like
DNS problems
        (or a typo). That method doesn't always work because of virtual
hosts, but
        if it does it will get you closer.

Maybe it's inconsequential, but I usually put a "-k" before the host
uri... and it seems a little weird that Dave's command is trying to use
the POST data (-d stuff) as a host...

Just my 2
