digitalmars.D.learn - Vibe.d using Windows Certificate binding, possible?

I'm pretty sure this isn't possible, but maybe someone 
understands Windows better.

Windows provides a means no bind a certificate to a port using 
netsh.exe. This means (at least for standard Windows networking 
calls) connections to that port will be given the bound cert.

The Vibe.d documents state that a Certificate chain and key needs 
to be provided. I'm pretty sure that the port binding requires 
very specific Network API calls, possible .NET only. Can any 
confirm or deny?

Perhaps you could reference the command (aka the args with an example)? Otherwise, its a lot harder to figure out what it is doing under the hood.

"Application program source files include the Http.h header file to access function prototypes and structure definitions for the HTTP Server API. Developers can use the Httpapi.lib library file to build applications that use the HTTP Server API. At runtime, applications link to the Httpapi.dll." So no, vibe.d can't work with it. This a special snow flake feature from 2k3 server days.

Thank you, and it looks like core.sys.windows doesn't have this header file defined either. And now I've learned something new about MSDN docs.
