I have the same problem than Chaos at 07-16-2003, but I didn't see the solution:
I can't connect to secure sites (https://). It says "The request was rejected because the port it was connecting to is not configured to receive the protocol being sent". So how to connect to such sites ?
I am behind a proxy
secured site connect thru port 443. if you have any software such as zone alarm that blocks port 443, you have to disable it. Also check with your network admin (if you're connected from you office) for any other hardware firewall.
