Can you share an example?

—snip--
Eshell V7.0  (abort with ^G)
1> inets:start().
ok
2> ssl:start().
ok
3> httpc:request("https://raw.githubusercontent.com/processone/ejabberd/6a9c9616d04003d73a7ce2916ee03c997f66bc1d/examples/transport-configs/configs/aim-transport.xml").
—end snip —

Works for me.
