Port 443 - Connection made, no data returned?

Hi guys,


I'm experiencing some issues accessing port 443 when attempting to retrieve data from our FileMaker server. I am using the FX.php PHP class to make my connection, but this shouldn't be relevant. Previously, we have been accessing port 80 without any issues. It is my understanding that FileMaker can use port 80 and 443 by default.


However, upon switching the port to 443, it connects (I think) but I do not receive any results (or rather, I seem to receive an empty data set). To ensure the port was in fact open, I used telnet to attempt to ping the port, and it was successful. So from what I can guess, I am being allowed to make a connection, but it is not allowing data to be sent back to me. Is there perhaps some sort of server setting the is looking for some additional authentication or certificate that is not set? A big part of the problem is I do not have access to the remote desktop for the server, it is essentially a black box right now.


Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
