XML import over a proxy server or https


FileMaker Pro


Operating system version

OSX 10.7.3

Description of the issue

If I script the import records from XML, using an HTTP request, this works only is the client has a gateway to the internet.  It will fail if the client uses a proxy server or uses https instead of http.  This prevents me using several useful geocoding services in my solutions. 
Why doesn't this work, when the webviewer is happy to show webpages over a proxy or SSL?  Don't forget that most high schools use some sort of proxy server.

Steps to reproduce the problem

script the import of XML data via an http request, when the client is using a proxy server, or if the request needs to be sent via the secure sockets layer.

Expected result

records are imported

Actual result

there is a script error, missing fields.


No workaround if you can't change your client's internet connection.
