i think it's more actually OpenSSL-related question, but since some people had 
to go through this at least once, i was hoping to get some advise:

i built wwwssl.c with an addition of a proxy. Unfortunally every time i'm trying 
to hit HTTPS server i get error code 500 from the proxy with the following 

>The requested item could not be loaded by the proxy.
>The security library has experienced a database error.
>You will probably be unable to connect to this site securely. 

I have a feeling that it has something to do with the certificates that OpenSSL 
uses. On the other hand i have no problem hitting the same site through the same 
proxy with Netscape browser. Can anyone please tell me how to suck out Netscape 
ceritficates, so i can add them to OpenSSL ? Is there anything else i may be 
missing ?

Thanks a lot for your help !!!
