It does exist with a date of May 9 of 2017.

        Good question.  netcat-openbsd was missing so I installed
it with no difference.

        The openssl package was already installed.

        when I ran nc -v 443, The wheezy
system confirmed that there was a connection.

$nc -v 443
Connection to 443 port [tcp/https] succeeded!

It appears that the network part of the connection is working.

Thanks very much for help on what to look for.  I haven't found
anything yet but I know more than I did.
