HTTPS access through Winsock Control possible?

I want to be able to access https pages (SSL).  Is it possible to do this by simply providing a https:// extension to my GET call ie:

Winsock1.Execute "GET"

I want it to return back just the htm page information.  Once i see what is on the page i am done.  It is imparative though that the other site know that my side is secure too (or at least think that my side is secure).

Try using the Inet Transfer control instead. That is how I am doing it. I think it's called Microsoft Internet Transfer control, then you want to do something like this with it...

MyPageText = ConfigureForm.Inet1.OpenURL("")

then, "MyPageText" should contain the pages text.
