I have an application which successfully constructs a URL object, opens a connection, and writes to an Https server - However, this same application fails when the URL object is constructed for a proxy.

If I construct the URL object with just the target address, the application connects Https to the server and everything works properly.
As soon as I construct the URL object with protocol ("https"), hostName, and port, the connection fails with SSL Handshake problems.
Anybody have an idea how to go about working on this problem?
