        SCNetworkReachabilityCreateWithName(NULL, "www.google.com") does work fine,

        SCNetworkReachabilityCreateWithName(NULL, "https://domino.ese-edu.com") or

        SCNetworkReachabilityCreateWithName(NULL, "https://scanner.ese-edu.com:50443")


        Always fails although both URLs hit a working and responding server.


        Are there any special communication (port?) requirements for this function to work?

          You’re not supposed to pass URLs to SCNetworkReachabilityCreateWithName; it takes a DNS name.  So your second example should be:

          SCNetworkReachabilityCreateWithName(NULL, "domino.ese-edu.com")
