How do I use Indy 9 Components with Delphi 5 to send & receive SOAP message using SSL

I am trying to send and receive a SOAP message using Delphi 5 and Indy 9 Components using
SSL.

The article posted at:
http://www.sugarcoated.nl/articles/13?task=view

works fine for sending & receiving SOAP without using SSL, e.g. to a http:// URL.  But I don't know
how to modify this so that it works with SSL. I am using the Indy 9 components. It appears from
the source code of Indy 9 that it supports SSL.  I am  new to this topic. I don't need to use
cookies; I just need to send a SOAP message to a web service and get a SOAP message in
return, like the TSimpleSoap.Invoke on the above web page.  Simply changing FTCPClient.Port := 80; to Port:=443 didn't do the job.

Any help you can provide would be GREATLY appreciated!

Ciuly has some SSL examples on his webpages, maybe these will help.

His examples look too complicated for me. I only need to send a SOAP message and retrieve a reply from the same web service. Perhaps embedded within his examples is that one piece, but I don't know where to find it within all of that code and have it work.

I ended up having someone else write a simple program to read a file from the hard drive, send it via SSL, store the response as a file to the hard drive, which I then read into my program. It is not elegant but it works. No one came up with a solution for me.
