I think he already tried that. What I suggested, actually Joe suggested, is that when the brain is stuck at something (which looks obvious only after the fact like https vs http), try what you think should work except by means slightly behind-the-scenes. In case of http, that means telnet to the http port and send the http text commands. If the web server only accepts https input, you'll immediately see the intuitive response.

I'm sure we all agree solving a particular problem may not be as important as learning a systematic way to solve that type of problems.
