Thanks Rob

I have applied the updates you have provided, although from the output, I was probably already running the latest versions of these packages, as well as Net::HTTP and Net::HTTPS.

I had assumed, obviously, that I had to have openssl in order to have this reliable. However, you have shown me the error of that assumption. But, that leaves the puzzle illustrated by the following output:

C:/Perl64.v.5.14/bin\perl.exe -w c:/Projects/LWP/ https://w 2012/11/28 20:13:53> Request: POST, User-Agen +t: libwww-perl/6.02, Content-Length: 0, Content-Type: applicati +on/x-www-form-urlencoded, (no content) 2012/11/28 20:13:53> Response last request: 2012/11/28 20:13:53> Response headers: Content-Type: text/plain, Cl +ient-Date: Thu, 29 Nov 2012 01:13:53 GMT, Client-Warning: Internal + response 2012/11/28 20:13:53> Response code: 500 2012/11/28 20:13:53> Response status: Internal Server Error 2012/11/28 20:13:53> Response status: 500 Can't connect to +ca:443 (Crypt-SSLeay can't verify hostnames) Header field names: Content-TypeClient-DateClient-Warning Previous: undef 2012/11/28 20:13:53> The URL was not successfull +y retrieved.

I had belived that the inability to verify the hostname was due to a problem with my installation WRT openssl. But, if that is incorrect, why does the code fail to verify the hostname? I had even tried each of the following lines of code (separately):

$ua->ssl_opts( SSL_ca_file => Mozilla::CA::SSL_ca_file() ); $ua->ssl_opts( verify_hostnames => 0 );

Of course, $ua is created beforehand using "my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new;".

Also, I used the statement "$ENV{HTTPS_DEBUG} = 1; " to try to get more detailed debugging information. However, as you can see above, I get very little useful debugging information. How can I get more detailed information about the hand-shaking between my client and the server, and especially, diagnostics as to what can go awry?
