We have a system that is using the GDAL C# wrappers to talk to a WMS server. This all works ok when using HTTP, but if we try and connect to the same server using HTTPS then the call to GDAL. Open fails and the message "https not supported or disabled in libCurl" is output in the debug log. The HTTPS connection works OK with applications.
Looking online seems to indicate that libcurl doesn't like URLs with single quotes or spaces in them, but the URL we pass to GDAL has double-quotes.
It seems an obvious thing that GDAL would support HTTPS connections to WMS servers (or it does to me) so has anyone got this functionality working before, and if so, what's the secret?
We are using GDAL 1.11.0 and libCurl 7.18.
