I'm giving you the specific server in the script because I have not been able to 
reproduce the problem using any other server. It also works in PHP5.3 on the same 
server. I do not administer the server in question. I have tried using an MITM 
proxy, but that worked instead of giving me relevant errors. I've tried using 
openssl's s_client and manually send HTTP commands. That too, worked.
libcurl works, wget works. It's just the php stream wrapper that doesn't work and 
I do not feel like I possess the necessary knowledge to know how to continue 
debugging this.

Sadly, I'm currently using the SoapClient in PHP for the implementation so it's 
not a cake walk to rewrite it using libcurl instead.

Any help appreciated!

Test script:
echo file_get_contents(;

Expected result:
WSDL-definition printed out.

Actual result:
200 second timeout until error message:
Warning: file_get_contents(
wsdl): failed to open stream: HTTP request failed!
