SSL certificates problem when connection to different port

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to connect to a server via HTTPS using a non-standard port:
but I'm getting the following error:

curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer
More details here:

curl performs SSL certificate verification by default, using a "bundle"
 of Certificate Authority (CA) public keys (CA certs). If the default
 bundle file isn't adequate, you can specify an alternate file
 using the --cacert option.
If this HTTPS server uses a certificate signed by a CA represented in
 the bundle, the certificate verification probably failed due to a
 problem with the certificate (it might be expired, or the name might
 not match the domain name in the URL).
If you'd like to turn off curl's verification of the certificate, use
 the -k (or --insecure) option.

If I don't specify a port everything works fine. Any ideas?
