        I have compiled and installed CURL Library for AIX (Version 5.3) a 64 bit OS.
        The Details of installed curl is
                curl 7.18.1 (powerpc-ibm-aix5.3.0.0) libcurl/7.18.1 OpenSSL/0.9.8d
                Protocols: tftp ftp telnet dict http file https ftps
                Features: IPv6 Largefile NTLM SSL .

        I am trying for https (SSL) connection to server through libcurl and command line curl.
        My server (IBMWebSphere) is running on same machine.
        I am getting error related to authentiticity of server's certificates.
        To overcome this error i used "-k/--insecure" with command line curl.
        I succeeded in making HTTPS connection to server.

        Now i am trying to make HTTPS connection through libcurl (embeded in my project code).
        But i am not able to do so. To achieve the insecure connection i have set following in my code.
        curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, -1);
        Still i am not able to get HTTPS connection.
        I am getting the following error with error code 35 (CURLE_SSL_CONNECT_ERROR)
        INFO : SSL_Callback:CURL INFO [About to con nect() to new port 9443 (#0)
        INFO : SSL_Callback:CURL INFO [ Trying 0.0 .0.0... ]
