Creating a SSL connection using fsocket yields an error

My operating system is Debian , and configure line is as follows : 

 './configure' '--prefix=/usr/phpapache2' '--with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs' '--disable-cgi' '--disable-cli' '--with-config-file-path=/etc/php4/apache' '--enable-inline-optimization' '--disable-debug' '--disable-rpath' '--disable-static' '--with-layout=GNU' '--with-pear=/usr/share/php' '--enable-calendar' '--with-bz2' '--disable-ctype' '--with-iconv' '--enable-exif' '--enable-ftp' '--with-gettext' '--disable-ipv6' '--disable-wddx' '--disable-posix' '--with-expat-dir=/usr' '--with-zlib' '--without-pgsql' '--enable-zip=/usr' '--with-exec-dir=/usr/lib/php4/libexec' '--without-sybase-ct' '--with-mysql=/usr' '--with-gd' '--with-jpeg-dir=/usr' '--with-png-dir=/usr' '--with-xpm-dir=/usr' '--with-ttf=shared,/usr' '--with-t1lib' '--with-freetype-dir=/usr' '--enable-gd-native-ttf' '--with-sqlite' '--with-mysqli' '--with-xsl' '--enable-ctype' '--with-pdo-mysql' '--with-xmlrpc' '--without-pdo-sqlite' '--enable-mbstring' '--disable-inifile' '--disable-flatfile' '--with-openssl' '--enable-sockets'

running php 5.2.9 

Reproduce code:
When trying the following code : 

$fp = fsockopen("ssl://" , 443, $errno, $errstr, 30);
if (!$fp) {
    echo "$errstr ($errno)<br />\n";
} else {
    $out = "GET / HTTP/1.1\r\n";
    $out .= "Host:\r\n";
    $out .= "Connection: Close\r\n\r\n";
    fwrite($fp, $out);
    while (!feof($fp)) {
        echo fgets($fp, 128);

Expected result:

Actual result:
Warning: fsockopen() [function.fsockopen]: SSL: connection timeout in /path/to/file/p.php on line 2

Warning: fsockopen() [function.fsockopen]: Failed to enable crypto in /path/to/file/p.php on line 2

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions.  Due to the volume
of reports we can not explain in detail here why your report is not
a bug.  The support channels will be able to provide an explanation
for you.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

The error is self explanatory and indicates a server issue rather than PHP.
