Hi all,

Apologies if this is redundant - we're in a miserable time crunch and
need an answer fast, and none of the resources appear to answer what
seems to be a simple question:

Is there such a beast as an HttpsManager?  

We're running a simple standalone application which uses the HttpManager
and acts as a proxy server of sorts.  It does some simple diddling of
the request it gets from the client, sends it along to a host, gets the
reponse the host, diddles the response a bit, and sends that back to the
client.  We were thinking we could simply mix in http and https requests
and the HttpManager would know what to do, but this appears not to be
the case.

So:

1) Is it possible to configure an HttpManager to handle https requests?
If so , how?
2) If not, what's the proper way to do this?

I'd ordinarily be happy to grok docs and code until I figured this out,
but I've got a ridiculous deadline staring me in the face and don't have
time to do the legwork myself - I'm hoping this one has an easy
response!

Many and profuse thanks for any help!

Best,

Ben
