You probably only needed to install Mozilla::CA

    Hi There

    I think , it was not a issue of Certificate check , It is an issue of SSL handling. So intalling Mozilla::CA did not help me. The above solution only helped me.

      Sorry, that just doesn't make sense. I use windows OS and I download large https files at will. I'm not special.

        Hi

        I totally agree with you. I also used Just WWW::Mechanize in my home PC to connect to https site and download. But the problem occurs in my office PC, Which is behind HTTPS proxy and When i try to access https site i had a problem.

        So, I tried many things and the above solution only works for me. I put it here as a information so other monks can try it if they face similar issues.
        This does not mean , This is the only solution or I dis agree with you. Even as I mentioned, Normal WWW::Mechanize in Linux works for me but failed in Windows 7 + Active Perl 5.10 + HTTPS proxy situation.
