Request timed out.

I checked this bonjur article
and via command line everything looks fine.
But when I launch the RevelApp, it discovers the iOS simulator but is not able to connect.
I checked the console log and I saw some messages:

NSURLSessionTask finished with error - code: -1001
TIC TCP Conn Cancel [11:0x6180003801a0]

    Hi Ignazio,

    The log message that you have attached looks interesting – it mentions the following URL that Reveal attempted to load:


    This is curious because Reveal does not actually use HTTPS to communicate with the inspected application. I would assume that the timeout is caused by Reveal attempting (for some reason) to initiate an SSL handshake and, of course, failing to do so.

    It would be difficult for me to guess why exactly Reveal attempts to use HTTPS in your case, but I'll try: maybe there's some sort of system-wide tweak or kernel extension installed on your system that somehow forces all HTTP requests to be performed over SSL, including that with services on localhost? Maybe if you're using a computer provided by your employer, such tweak is enforced by your system administrator policy?

    It would also be great to know which version of Reveal you're using.

    Best regards,
