Converting to SSL site - use ProxyConnect or jsConnect and how?

I'm using VanillaForums v 2.0.18.8 and have it integrated now with my site login using ProxyConnect v1.9.9. It works fine, but I need to convert everything over to SSL-only. I have the certificate installed, etc. But cannot get Vanilla to recognize the site login when using SSL. I've read about changing the authentication URL from http://www.mydomain.com/auth.php to https://www.mydomain.com/auth.php and even https://www.mydomain.com:443/auth.php, tried all to no avail. Also tried jsConnect and copied the ProxyConnect Authentication Key into jsConnect's Client ID and when accessing the forums I then get the login screen (which doesn't recognize the pre-filled login credentials).

Is there a good tutorial on converting ProxyConnect to SSL, or switching to jsConnect if that works better?
