RE: Server Name Indication?

At least in 7.1, it appears to be in GSKIT

Hi Ted,

HTTPAPI does not have it's own code for SSL.   It merely calls the GSKit 
APIs for SSL that IBM provides with the operating system.

Server Name Indication (SNI) is a feature of SSL, not a feature of HTTP, 
so there's no way I can implement this.  IBM would have to do it.
