[ipxe-devel] trying to leverage https address but not with certificates.

I'm trying to access a pxelinux.cfg file over HTTPS instead of HTTP:

# Disable automated download of certificates since it is done against
# unauthenticated host which may lead to exploits

ifstat net0
imgfetch -n kernel https://WEBSERVER/pxelinux.cfg/01-${net0/mac:hexhyp} && goto image_ok || goto discovery_image

ifstat net0
imgfetch -n kernel https://WEBSERVER/pxelinux.cfg/default || echo ${net0/mac}:${ip} - Boot Failed

imgload kernel
boot kernel

I've tried compiling ipxe-fd95c78 and updated config/general.h to include $define DOWNLOAD_PROTO_HTTPS but it still fails to access the URL, if I change it back to http://WEBSERVER, it works.

Any advice?

Thank you.
