My code indeed links against OpenSSL to deal with the HTTPS protocol inside the embedded Web server (Mongoose).
However, curl is used for the connection among Orthanc peers, in a totally separate part of the software. I actually do not care about how curl handles HTTPS requests, as I dynamically link against curl. I have always thought that the gnutls version of curl is the one that is installed by default in Debian, but I may be wrong. That being said, I can evidently easily switch to the openssl version of curl.
Could you tell me what is the preferred version of curl in Debian?
