​We rebuilt the lib curl lib using liberal 2.3.0 for Win32, and re-ran
the same tests. We are still encountering the same errors. The HTML
replies are returned in a few fragments as expected, but are
prematurely terminated by the peer.

​But, running the same code over a proxy server works (as was the case
with ​OpenSSL as well).

​Our thinking is that the web site operator may have changed their
firewall setting to reset long-lived HTTP connections. But we still
cannot explain why the same exact program using a proxy server works.

Any advise as to what else we can do?

​Kind regards
