Warning: fgets(): SSL: fatal protocol error

Okay, I am working on a credit card validation script, I have it
working perfectly (saving the return information from the server to a
variable and echoing it for now) other than this weird error on the
fgets() line. I can't seem to figure out the problem, the code is
below, any help is appreciated!

<?php
$host = "secure.authorize.net";
$port = 443;
$path = "/gateway/transact.dll";
$formdata = array ("x_form_post_data_here" => "value");
foreach($formdata AS $key => $val){
$poststring .= urlencode($key) . "=" . urlencode($val) . "&";
}
$poststring = substr($poststring, 0, -1);
$fp = fsockopen("ssl://".$host, $port, $errno, $errstr, $timeout =
30);
if(!$fp){
echo "$errstr ($errno)\n";
}else{
fputs($fp, "POST $path HTTP/1.0\r\n");
fputs($fp, "Host: $host\r\n");
fputs($fp, "Content-type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded\r\n");
fputs($fp, "Content-length: ".strlen($poststring)."\r\n");
fputs($fp, "Connection: close\r\n\r\n");
fputs($fp, $poststring . "\r\n\r\n");
while(!feof($fp)) {
$out_put_string .= fgets($fp, 4096); //<== HERE IS THE ERROR LINE #
}
fclose($fp);
}
echo $out_put_string;
?>

OK, now I see it hidden in the subject line... What version of PHP do
you have? SSL is only supported on PHP 4.3 and above.

computers...)

You mean HTTPS. So, change 'ssl' with 'https'.

My experience has been that, when using fsockopen
to do an HTTP POST, \r\n does not work as a line
terminator. I've been forced to use just \n.

YMMV

The standard says that lines end with \r\n, but somehow
with PHP and fsockopen() that does not work. Here is my
post where I show what I did:

The error syntax is in the subject as well as the line number
commented in the code. What more do you want?

>>RE:SAM

Actually, HTTPS is an unknown protocol you MUST use SSL (see the
fsockopen() function reference on PHP.net). If I use HTTPS as the
protocol I get all sorts of errors.

I tried removing all the \r's from my headers however it did not
change the error message I am getting. I did however, set the text
size of the error to 1pt (with style), made it the background color,
and used the visibility style tag to hide the layer that the error
mes. is on so at least people can't see it.

I AM receiving the correct response from the server, I just get that
weird error.

Sorry. Forgive me. Please.

Are you using a PHP version below 4.3?
