Yes, you need to enable SSL.

There are existing makefiles with targets that do this for you, but if you
really want the MSVC IDE way, do this:

- Define USE_SSLEAY in the CFLAGS

- Add include path to OpenSSL

- Add libeay32.lib ssleay32.lib to libs to link with

- Add path to the OpenSSL libs to the link path
