Implicit SSL connections doesn't works

I've a problem with implicit SSL connections. I've the following code:

CURL *curl;

curl = curl_easy_init();

// common configurations

curl_easy_setopt(curl,CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, 0);

curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, 1);

curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_ERRORBUFFER, errorMsg );

curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_VERBOSE, TRUE);

curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_NOPROGRESS, 0); // needed for the progress

curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PROGRESSFUNCTION, ProgressCallback);

curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, remUrl);

curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_WRITEFUNCTION, WriteMemoryCallback);

curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_WRITEDATA, &chunky);

res = curl_easy_perform(curl);

With that code I get a handshake error ("A problem occurred somewhere in the
SSL/TLS handshake") I don't think that it is a server problem, because I can
stablish implicit SSL connections using the Filezilla client. The url I use
to make the connection is:


(without putting the port number neither works)

Any idea?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,
