I believe that OpenSSL is installed on Cygwin by default:

Um, so when you use Windows+F "file finder" to search your cygwin directory, where do you find ssl.h?


forget about this, its got nothing to do with missing headers

    Sorry for not being clear: I didn't have the ssl.h header file. I found that I had to re-install Cygwin with the "OpenSSL development environment". I now find the header file at


    Are there any environment variables that I need to setup?

    Thanks, Edward

        Installing Crypt::SSLeay still fails so started installing prerequisites individually. Installed:

        IO::Socket::SSL, Net::SSLeay, Mozilla::CA

        Then went back to Crypt::SSLeay

        Heim@Heim-PC ~/.cpan/build/Crypt-SSLeay-0.64-4GqoXH $ perl Makefile.PL The test suite can attempt to connect to public servers to ensure that + the code is working properly. If you are behind a strict firewall or have +no network connectivity, these tests may fail (through no fault of the co +de). Do you want to run the live tests (y/N)? [N] y Checking if your kit is complete... Looks good Warning: prerequisite LWP::Protocol::https 6.02 not found. Note (probably harmless): No library found for -lz Note (probably harmless): No library found for -lssl32 Note (probably harmless): No library found for -lssleay32 Note (probably harmless): No library found for -leay32 Writing Makefile for Crypt::SSLeay Writing MYMETA.yml Heim@Heim-PC ~/.cpan/build/Crypt-SSLeay-0.64-4GqoXH $

        Went back to installing prerequisite LWP::Protocol::https. The steps:

        perl Makefile.PL make

        seemed to be okay but testing gave the following result:

        Heim@Heim-PC ~/.cpan/build/LWP-Protocol-https-6.03-szsMUU $ make test PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/bin/perl.exe "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" "-e" "te +st_harness(0, 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')" t/*.t t/apache.t .. 1/2 # Failed test at t/apache.t line 14. # Failed test at t/apache.t line 15. # 'Can't connect to # # ' # doesn't match '(?^:Apache Software Foundation)' # Looks like you failed 2 tests of 2. t/apache.t ..

Makefile:783: recipe for target `test_dynamic' failed make: *** [test_dynamic] Error 2

        Disabling my firewall made no difference. Any feedback appreciated on steps to take next.

        The one test file seems to access"" but since I'm trying to install LWP::Protocol::https, how does the test work? :

        $ cat apache.t #!perl -w use strict; use Test::More; use LWP::UserAgent; my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new(); plan skip_all => "Not online" unless $ua->is_online; plan tests => 2; my $res = $ua->simple_request(HTTP::Request->new(GET => "https://www.a")); ok($res->is_success); like($res->content, qr/Apache Software Foundation/); $res->dump(prefix => "# ");

        Thanks, Edward
