I'm relatively new to libwww as well so take anything I say with a grain
of salt.  As far as using a proxy, all I tried was adding the line

   HTProxy_add( "https", sProxy );  // Where sProxy is a string
containing my proxy URL

I don't know if that's what I'm 'supposed' to do but it seemed to make
sense to me.  I never made a successful GET request of an https URL this
way even though IE and Navigator had no problem fetching the same URL
through the same proxy.  (I also had http requests going through the
proxy and they worked fine.)

I just used the OpenSSL stuff.  (I think this is "Eric's
implementation".)  I never tried linking with any of the RSA libraries.

Hope that makes sense.
