Symptoms

1) Trying to access HTTPS site using UTL_HTTP package and its failing with "ORA-29263: HTTP protocol error" (OR) in some case ORA-24247.

    The most prevalent symptom occurs when using UTL_HTTP.REQUEST in 11.2 for accessing a secured HTTP site which result in ORA-29263.
    There have even been cases of the ORA-24247 error below even though the ACL was granted:
