Hello,

does anybody know, what to do to get HTTPS working with ruby 1.8.4 on 
Windows?

I get the error:

RUBY18/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:565:in `connect': undefined method 
`verify_mode' for nil:NilClass (NoMethodError)
	from I:/PROGRAMS/RUBY18/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:555:in 
`do_start'
	from I:/PROGRAMS/RUBY18/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:544:in `start'
	from I:/PROGRAMS/RUBY18/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:1031:in 
`request'
	from I:/PROGRAMS/RUBY18/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:771:in `get'
	from K:/ssl3.rb:29


The same error is described here:

Solution there: "Rolling back to a clean, fresh ruby 1.8.2-15", but I 
don't like to do this... .


For test, I used for example this code:

#-----------------------------
require 'net/https' 

url = URI.parse 'https://www.wamu.com' 
server = Net::HTTP.new url.host, url.port 
server.use_ssl = url.scheme == 'https' 
server.verify_mode = OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_NONE 
response = server.get url.request_uri 
puts response.code
#-----------------------------

I'm using:

ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [i386-mswin32], Windows 98SE
