Let me add my code snippet and try explaining things.
the code works perfectly on a windows machine but not on Linux.

When debugging the connection on my Linux box, I see the following message:

Proxy Settings:

                Proxy IP: 10.103.12.15

                Proxy Port : 8080

                Proxy Username: Rajesh

res = failure when receiving data from the peer

HTTP response code = 0

-------------

Packet capture on my box reveals that :

CONNECT servername:443 HTTP/1.0..(nil)...

Is it expecting some header? If not, why would CURL place a (nil) here?

----------
Code snippet follows:

/* get a curl handle */

  curl = (*fp_curl_easy_init)();

  if(curl) {

    /* we want to use our own read function */

    (*fp_curl_easy_setopt)(curl, CURLOPT_READFUNCTION, read_callback);

     /* enable uploading */

    (*fp_curl_easy_setopt)(curl, CURLOPT_UPLOAD, 1) ;

     /* HTTP PUT please */

    (*fp_curl_easy_setopt)(curl, CURLOPT_PUT, 1);

   /* Uncomment following line when debugging connection */

    (*fp_curl_easy_setopt)(curl, CURLOPT_VERBOSE, 1);

   /* specify target URL, and note that this URL should include a file name,
not only a directory */

    (*fp_curl_easy_setopt)(curl,CURLOPT_URL, m_uploadURL);

the

     * A LOT LESS SECURE.

     *

     * If you have a CA cert for the server stored someplace else than in
the

     * default bundle, then the CURLOPT_CAPATH option might come handy for

     * you.

     */

    (*fp_curl_easy_setopt)(curl, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, 0);

#endif

#ifdef SKIP_HOSTNAME_VERFICATION

    /*

     * If the site you're connecting to uses a different host name that what

     * they have mentioned in their server certificate's commonName (or

     * subjectAltName) fields, libcurl will refuse to connect. You can skip

     */

    (*fp_curl_easy_setopt)(curl, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, 0);

#endif

            if (m_proxyInUse)

            {

                        sprintf(tmpBuf1, "%s:%s", m_proxyIP, m_proxyPort);

                        (*fp_curl_easy_setopt)(curl, CURLOPT_PROXY, tmpBuf1

                        (*fp_curl_easy_setopt)(curl, CURLOPT_PROXYUSERPWD,

                        //(*fp_curl_easy_setopt)(curl,

                        (*fp_curl_easy_setopt)(curl,

            }

            /* now specify which file to upload */

    (*fp_curl_easy_setopt)(curl, CURLOPT_READDATA, hd_src);

    /* provide the size of the upload, we specicially typecast the value

       to curl_off_t since we must be sure to use the correct data size */

    (*fp_curl_easy_setopt)(curl, CURLOPT_INFILESIZE_LARGE,

                     (curl_off_t)filesize);

    /* Now run off and do what you've been told! */

    res = (*fp_curl_easy_perform)(curl);

            (*fp_curl_easy_getinfo)(curl, CURLINFO_RESPONSE_CODE,
&response_code );

            fprintf(stderr, "\nres = %s\nHTTP response code = %ld\n",
(*fp_curl_easy_strerror)(res), response_code);

            if (response_code != 201)

            {

                        returnVal = -1;

            }

    /* always cleanup */

    (*fp_curl_easy_cleanup)(curl);

  }

  fclose(hd_src); /* close the local file */

  (*fp_curl_global_cleanup)();

  return returnVal;
