It seems like I can't access any Lists on https sites, I get the status -> error everytime I try. Tried GetList and GetListItems operations in my Javascript function, which works fine on any site I tested it - as I just have to change my "SITE_URL" parameter. The webURL and listName are given.

So I came to ask: Is SPServices working different on https?

EDIT: Someone coming across this question looking for similar issues may find this topic about CORS, different farms and HTTP / HTTPS useful: Link

From my experience, no. I've used it in both http and https environments without issues.

Accepting your answer, as it seems to be the correct answer to the actual question in my post, thanks. – curmudgeon Nov 1 '12 at 8:57

Note that accessing data cross-protocols will breach Same Origin Policy.

You can get around this by using a relative URL, or just start a full path URL with // instead of specifying protocol.

The CORS subject led me to another answer, thanks for the point. – curmudgeon Nov 1 '12 at 8:55
