Any component which uses HTTP as a transport mechanism which is part of IPWorks is only capable of communicating with servers in plain text. This includes Atom, HTTP, REST, RSS, SOAP, WebDAV, WebForm, and WebUpload. If the URL you're attempting to use begins with https:// you must use the corresponding SSL enabled component which is part of the IPWorks toolkit.
