Problem with Ethernet Shield and Google Forms

Hello, I hope somebody can help me with this issue.
I’m trying to call a Google Forms document to upload data to Google Spreadsheet. I’m using an Arduino UNO with Ethernet Shield.

I figured out the URL and it’s working fine while being called in a browser, but I am not able to call this URL via Arduino.
The ethernet connection works (I’m able to upload to Ubidots for example), but this baffles me.

I tried with the WebClient example:

/*

 Circuit:
 * Ethernet shield attached to pins 10, 11, 12, 13

#include <SPI.h>
#include <Ethernet.h>

// Enter a MAC address for your controller below.
// Newer Ethernet shields have a MAC address printed on a sticker on the shield
byte mac[] = { 0xDE, 0xAD, 0xBE, 0xEF, 0xFE, 0xED };

// if you don't want to use DNS (and reduce your sketch size)
// use the numeric IP instead of the name for the server:
//IPAddress server(74,125,232,128);  // numeric IP for Google (no DNS)
char server[] = "docs.google.com";    // name address for Google (using DNS)

// Set the static IP address to use if the DHCP fails to assign
IPAddress ip(192, 168, 0, 177);
IPAddress myDns(192, 168, 0, 1);

// Initialize the Ethernet client library
// with the IP address and port of the server

but I’m getting back from google a “Moved permanently” page, with a link to the same URL i transmitted. I’m obviously missing something basic here. Can you please help?Thanks!

I'm thinking it's probably something to do with HTTPS, but trying anything with that did not allow me to connect (changing port to 443 etc).
I'm not really intersted in the reply, just in calling the URL. Is there any way I can obtain this?

As you already figured out the arduino shield doesnt have enough processing power to handle the crypto processing required for a https:// connection. You will have to find some kind of intermediate service that allows your arduino to connect via http:// then handles the ssl connection for you. The Webhooks works better with IFTTT service is an example, there may be others.

thanks. I’m trying with pushingbox with no luck (i can trigger, but I can’t transfer the variables)
