The underlying URL has moved.

The following is brief log of transaction using WFetch.

Just because the URL resolves, redirects and displays does not mean that
that URL will now work in Mathematica version 9. Does the same URL still
work in Mathematica 8?

If I figure out what settings URLFetch needs I will forward a solution when

In Mathematica 8,I used to be able to do import the contents of this


Now, in Mathematica 9, I just get

During evaluation of In[9]:= URLFetch::invhttp: SSL connect error. >>

During evaluation of In[9]:= FetchURL::conopen: The connection to URL
cannot be opened. If the URL is correct, you might need to configure your
firewall program, or you might need to set a proxy in the Internet
connectivity tab of the Preferences dialog (or by calling SetInternetProxy).
For HTTPS connections, you might need to inspect the authenticity of the
server's SSL certificate and choose to accept it.

Out[9]= $Failed

This is on Win7, 64-bit. I've tried following up various parts of the
error message without success. I have no problem seeing the contents of the
URL in two Web browsers (Chrome, IE. So I think it is probably not the last
part of the message although I'm not sure what I would have to do in that

Can anybody help?
