The error message that you are receiving indicates that there was a problem communicating with the remote server: either sending the request or no response was received back. You may be able to get more information if you turned on http client logging using

call sa_server_option( 'WebClientLogFile', 'provide-a-file-name.txt' );
call sa_server_option( 'WebClientLogging', 'ON' );

If you do not specify the WebClientLogFile then the output will go to the server console log. See WebClientLogging for more information.

Thank you, this helps. I get [connid = 364, Error: socket closed by peer] [connid = 364, socket closed]

both for GET and PUT so it looks like it is certificate error
