Error: .

Even if i set verify peer option to 0 and disable it same error is coming.
If any one have done HTTPS implementation please send me your source code if possible.

What may be the error, how to correct it?

we were facing similar problem , we solved it by upgrading our SSL librararies.
Any way you see the curl library call through   --libcurl option for more intent in the problem.
curl  https://new:9443/manil  --libcurl   filename    (check the calls in file filename)
