Problems setting up HTTPS thru a proxy
Maybe someone out there in antionline land can help me with a problem Im having with HTTPS.
I'm setting up a friends box to use HTTPS thru a proxy, but no matter what I try I cant seem to get it to work. Everytime I go to an HTTPS://www.xxxxx.xxx address it just defaults to an HTTP://www.xxxxx.xxx. I have checked to make sure that the proxy supports SSL/HTTPS, and that the firewall is open on 443. I suspect it has something to do with the firewall, but im not sure. The box is running ME, I would be most gratiful for advice from anyone...

What browser are you using?
what proxy are you using?
when it defaults to HTTP does it open the page, or is there no access at all?
If you think it has something to do with the firewall why dont you disable it then try? at least it eliminates it iether way. Let us know.

Are you sure that the site you're going to uses SSL?
If you go to https://www.google.com you'll be redirected to http://www.google.com.
That's because google doesn't use SSL.
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Thanks for the responses. I was able to find out what was going on. It seems that an older version of some openssl software was installed on the system that caused some unwanted/buggy behavior, I uninstalled and restarted and everything worked just fine, a dll component had a coding error that caused HTTPS requests using proxy's to fail. Everything's ok now...
