SSL client/server programm in C

Hey guys,
I need to create client/server program to connect to the remote server through the internet using SSL + and how to send (or get) data through parallel port to a microcontroller?
Any source code? Any reference? Any idea, advice?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Sounds like two distinct questions to me...

Meanwhile, the standard way to talk SSL from a C program is to use the OpenSSL libraries (

Another possibility is not to make the C program itself SSL aware, but to tunnel with Stunnel (

Finally, if this is strictly web stuff, you could even call an external program like wget (
I think this is more a programming question perhas ask the moderators to move to linux programming?
Try the following example

If you are at all fluent in any programming language, you should be able to get the RFC/whitepapers on whatever technology/protocol you are trying to implement. SSL was succeeded by TLS. SSL never got to the "RFC" stage, but TLS has.

Histort of TLS rfc..
RFC 2246: "The TLS Protocol Version 1.0"
RFC 2712: "Addition of Kerberos Cipher Suites to Transport Layer Security (TLS)"
RFC 2817: "Upgrading to TLS Within HTTP/1.1"
RFC 2818: "HTTP Over TLS"
RFC 3268: "AES Ciphersuites for TLS"

As far as coding in C for controlling the parallel port:
