Data transfer from a non-SSL to and from SSL

P: n/a
I would like to know how we can transfer data through a
secured channel to a non-secured site. I am designing an
e-commerce site and getting data from secured site
database(on a firewall) and display to my site. Thank you.

I wasn't able to implement this through PHP and switched that part of
the site to a perl CGI program. Perl has CPAN modules available that
permit emulation of a browser accessing SSL connections, complete with
accepting any cookies, POST, and GET processing. I needed this to
connect to our credit card processor.

You can do a similar thing with the cURL library.

My ISP doesn't offer php with curl. They won't allow compiling programs
on their system. They were willing to make sure the perl CPAN libraries
for Digest::MD5, HTTP::Request::Common, and LWP::UserAgent. Other php
providers didn't offer curl either, so I went with the current ISP.
