    I'm trying to open a socket to a web page
    that uses SSL.

    If I specify port 80 (obviously wrong, I know),
    I get an error stating that the page uses SSL,
    and that I should use https:// to specify the
    address. Of course, since I'm trying to open
    the page using fsockopen this doesn't help.

    If I specify port 443 the script just times
    out.

    When I try the same script on a non-SSL page
    using port 80 it works great, so I know the
    basic script is ok. Is there any way to specify
    that you want to connect securely in the
    HTTP request header? I've been looking for
    info on this everywhere and haven't had any
    luck.

    Any help/insights appreciated.

    You should have more luck doing it with Perl.

    Download the following:
    1) http://www.perl.com/CPAN-local/modul...ay-0.16.tar.gz

    2) http://www.perl.com/CPAN-local/modul...rl-5.48.tar.gz

    Read the following:
    1) http://www.perl.com/CPAN-local/modul...ay-0.16.readme

    2) http://www.perl.com/CPAN-local/modul...rl-5.48.readme

    3) Readme.ssl once you extracted libwww-perl-5.48.tar.gz

    Well, in case PHP can't perform the tasks, you've got to go for Perl, which can do almost everything.
