Summary: curl_exec repsonse over https is Intermittent

Initial Comment:
I am using PHP and CURL to send/recevie XML data from
a website using https. The response is Intermittent.
Some times I get the response right away. Some time I
dont get the response, and it times out. Does any one
have this problem?
FreeBSD 4.x
PHP version : mod_php4-4.3.4_2,1
Curl version ; curl-7.10.7
Open SSL version is : openssl-0.9.7c_1
Please shed some light on this, so that I can continue
building my site.
Here is the code that I am trying.....
    $httpURL =;
  curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_URL,$httpURL);
  curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, 1);
  curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, 0);
  curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER,
$httpHeaders ); // Set the Headers
  curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1); // POST Method
  curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS,
$httpBody); //My XML Request
  curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, '1');
  curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
  $httpResponse = curl_exec ($ch); //Send the request

Thanks in advance
