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
