Since I need to connect to secure server before I can do handshake, If I connect to proxy 1st (I will have to do this if I am going thru proxy) how do I connect to secure server for Handshake. If I connect to proxy and do handshake it does not make sense logically and it does fails("asio.ssl error") if I try doing this. So the question is If I connect to Proxy 1st how do I create another secure socket and connect it to secure server which know that it has to go thru proxy?

This is the connection I want to established.
SecureSocket -> Proxy ->SecureServer.

Why do you assume changes are required? Have you tried connecting to a proxy? Does it work using your existing code?
