Did you assign an SSL-enabled IOHandler to the server?  It can't handle SSL
without that.

In any case, if the target HTTP server requires SSL, then TIdHTTPProxyServer
will not be able to connect to it.  The outbound connection that
TIdHTTPProxyServer creates does not currently support SSL yet.  You would
only be able to connect to the proxy server itself using SSL (after you set
up the IOHandler).

Indy 10 uses the official DLLs from the OpenSSL website now.
