I noticed that you have an xml_post() method in the class, with which you can send an xml file over to the remote server and retrieve the response. That's exactly what I need, only the remote server I'm trying to connect to, is using secure connections (i.e. the url is of the form https://some_host.com:port/some/uri)
Currently there's no support for that in the class. Is there a possibility to add that in the future?
