Curl is returning an error in Cygwin. How do I eliminate this error?

 curl --insecure -X POST -d '<run><log encoding="hexBinary">4142430A</log><result>0</result><duration>2000</duration></run>'   https://localhost:4444

The tunnel is working fine in Linux. 'Curl' in Cygwin returns the following error: curl: (35) Unknown SSL protocol error in connection to https://localhost:4444

--Insecure only appears to be working on Linux, not Cygwin.

Most likely an old or incomplete version of curl. What version of curl do you have and where did you get it? – Lekensteyn May 21 '13 at 22:48
Curl 7.29.0-1. Installed with Cygwin, package "Net". – bocamax May 31 '13 at 19:37
