CURL error when using basic command

curl -i -k -3 -X POST /rest/user/session -H “X-DreamFactory-Application-Name: todojquery” -d ‘{ “email” : “email”, “password” : “password” }’

curl: (35) error:14094410:SSL routines:SSL3_READ_BYTES:sslv3 alert handshake failure

i get this error when running the provided command from the dream factory tutorial page. i have taken out some of the url.
Does anyone know why i am getting a ssl routines error

I assume the full URL of your curl request is https?
Is the server you are connecting to equipped to handle SSL?
