Dear all,


      I have started recently working with libcurl. I need to download a
page from an ssl site. Moreover, I'm working with uclinux. I was able to
enable ssl with openssl library..


My curl-config --protocols returns HTTPS and FTPS too

And curl-config -feature returns SSL


Then I tried to compile curl-7.17.1/docs/examples/https.c file as it is, in


curl_easy_perform() api always returns CURLE_UNSUPPORTED_PROTOCOL. It is
otherwise CURLE_OK for a http:// or ftp:// protocol.


Do I have to do anything further especially for SSL site..
