Hi everyone,
I'm coming back with a problem i've already told you about ( i was busy on
other problems, that is why i waited so long)
First i will explain my problem clearly ( it's true that may mails were a
little confusing)

   I use libcurl 7.9, on HP-UX 10.20.
   My application sends request to a http/https server.
   There is a thread created to send each request
   My application is supposed to send several requests at the same time.
   It works pretty good when i use http
   BUT : when i use https, most of the requests are OK, but sometimes, i
   have the following error : couldn't resolve host xxxxx
   with the CURLOPT_VERBOSE option, i saw that it is a problem on
   I tried making several requests in a single thread, and the problem does
   not occur.
   i've checked my compilation options, they look compatible with

Can anyone help ; )
