GET Request from Revolution Fails

OK more info on this one:
We suspect it is because Revolution is not able to accept an https
URL... it return "Invalid URL" a search on the lists doesn't turn up
Hope there is a work around and we are missing something simple...
## where we are trying to get the returned web page from verisign
ONE=8088223012&FAX=8088223012&USER1=&METHOD=CC" into temp
put the result
changing this to :
GET URL temp
also doesn't work.
we get the same error. "it" is empty as well.
Now if I paste the same url into a browser it works perfectly. Strange.
Any ideas? It almost looks as if Rev can't to https connections??
What I really want to do is use POST as in the following (but that
doesn't work either):
HONE=8088223012&FAX=8088223012&USER1=&METHOD=CC" to URL
We could use the onboard "curl" shell command but the credit card info
is going to end up in the server logs... not ideal.
