When you use libcurl to access other hosts do you have the same problem?
Is it possible you have an anti-virus or anti-malware client that may be
blocking your program? What about when you try through your browser, can
you access that host or other hosts? How about using the curl tool?
Your test example looks straightforward, try the curl tool:

curl -v -k -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d

Note that the -k option allows insecure HTTPS connections and although
keeping in line with your example you really should verify the server's

If the curl tool doesn't work try using a curl tool that is known to
work [1] rather than one you built yourself. Doing these things should
help you narrow down a cause. If you need more assistance reply to the
list with the details outlined in section 1.3 at [2].
