Initiate the TLS/SSL handshake with an TLS/SSL server.
Calls internally Socket.SSL.Initialize if you did not yet call it.

Instead of using this SSL socket, please consider letting CURL do the job: Use CURL.SetOptionConnectOnly to let CURL connect and than send data using CURL.SendData and CURL.SendText. For receiving, please use CURL.ReceiveData and CURL.ReceiveText. This gives you much more SSL options and proxy support.
