The header function is called for each received header and it has
nothing to do with headers to be sent. To send encoded data in a header
use CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER [1] not the header function. It is possible the
headers to be sent could go to a proxy as well on CONNECT by default
depending on how old your version of libcurl is. This may not be what
you intended if the data is secret. In that case use CURLOPT_HEADEROPT
[2] as well if necessary.

   struct curl_slist *header_list = NULL;
   header_list = curl_slist_append(header_list, your_header_here);
   header_list = curl_slist_append(header_list, your_next_header_here);
   curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, header_list);

after the transfer is finished call curl_slist_free_all(header_list);

I suggest you contact connect2 if their server still does not
acknowledge your request after sending the proper headers.
