thanx for the response....
actually , i want to clarify something about https:// too...
Currently , i am passing the url to my server as http://myserver//page
& getting the valid response. 
If i try the same url with https://myserver//page 
i don't get the data in return .
pls. note that in my code :
    HTProfile_newPreemptiveClient((LPCTSTR)AfxGetAppName(), VERSION);
    HTProtocol_add("https", "buffered_tcp", 443, YES, HTLoadHTTP, NULL);
...........
	HTChunk* chunk = HTLoadToChunk(absolute_url, m_pRequest);
..........
i did added the https protocol(as otherwise it gives me unrecognised
protocol error) .... so am i still missing something in my code or there
could be some problem in my server too......


thanx
meenakshi

Hi,

Usage of ssl is tranparent. If you try to GET https://... then ssl transport
is
used. So you do not have to do a special setup for that. If you can GET a
document from a secure server then it works.
