My Apache server is currently not configured to use SSL, and I do not 
have a certificate.  There is a possibility that I will be creating a 
script to send POST data to another company's web service, and that 
company requires the connection to be via SSL.  The logical way for me 
to do this seems to be to use a socket to fire off the POST data at the 
other server, but I am not sure what is required to connect via SSL. 
Since browsers can do it without certificates, I would assume that I 
don't need a certificate to do this (only for if I want to use SSL with 
clients connecting to my server), but if someone could confirm this 
and/or point me in the direction of the functions that allow me to use 
SSL that would be greatly appreciated.
