SSL support under Windows

Hello All,

I have created a Python reader that uses urllib module to request earthquake data from USGS. All works well when I run ParaView under Mac or Linux. However, it fails under Windows indicating that it does not recognize HTTPS which makes me think that there is no SSL under Windows ParaView! Any thoughts on this?



That’s certainly plausible. We really don’t want to ship a copy of OpenSSL (due to security updates and the like), but I don’t know if Python supports just using Windows’ crypto APIs directly or not.
