RE: Yet another https problem

The site is running on an unusual port - 443 is normal for HTTP over
SSL. By default Squid blocks SSL access to other than the standard ports
to stop people making arbitrary outbound connections and, e.g. hacking
into other people's mail servers, using the lines

acl SSL_ports port 443 563
http_access deny CONNECT !SSL_ports

in the default squid.conf. Ask the webmaster to shift to port 443 -
they're not using it for anything else.
