steves has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I wrote a simple HTTP proxy server based on HTTP::Daemon. I'd like to extend it to include SSL support. My server follows the same basic model as the one in the docs for HTTP::Daemon.

I have SSL support (OpenSSL and Crypt::SSLeay) working for LWP https requests, so I'm familiar with it from that perspective. I'm not seeing how to enable it in HTTP::Daemon. I assume I have to do something special when I see a CONNECT request.

Has anyone done any work in this area that might help get me started? Thanks.
