I believe the method you are using is correct, I have tested it (with my
own key ID) and had no problems.
I am running MacOS 10.5.5, and the CLI was sent through Terminal.

I have searched with keywords 'HTTP post error', and it seems that when
the verb POST is used to access HTTP, the access request is denied.
Is it possible that your system, for some reason, is using the verb POST
when trying to access the server's site?

For all it is worth.
