As a cURL wrapper, tsNet's error messages tend to follow the same 
conventions other cURL devs see, lending itself to generic searches:

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=SSLRead()+return+error+-9806&ia=web

I only briefly looked at a few of the results, but it seems related to a 
very specific SSL cert config that results in timeouts.  Beyond that 
you'll have to read more, but hopefully that link will at least get you 
started until Charles shows up with his usual thorough response.
