I think the problem with ""; is with the
SSL connection rather than with lynx itself. I can connect with an
old SSLeay-based proxy, but not with a current openssl-based one.
Investigating with "openssl s_client", it appears that you need to
turn off ssl3 and tsl1 before you can get a handshake with that
server. Hence I can connect with "openssl s_client -ssl2". At least
with the eassl and edssl proxies, I don't see a way to turn this
off at runtime. I don't know if there is a way to configure this at
runtime with lynx built with the SSL patch. If this is a site that you
need to visit frequently, you could consider rebuilding openssl with
ssl3 ant tsl1 disabled, then linking lynx with this library.

I am forwarding a copy of this to Tom Zerucha, since I am not sure if
he is still following lynx-dev regularly.
