webscarab error


Recommended Posts

Hello, I've tried using webscarab today to try to crawl a website...

I've noticed that webscarab uses as a proxy so I've set my Iceweasel browser proxy appropriately and when I tried navigating to the target website I've received this error in my browser, how do I fix it?

Please notice that I've replaced the actual domain name with 'xx' for discretion..

WebScarab encountered an error trying to retrieve

Webscarab is trying to do an SSL handshake with... something, basically make the connection HTTPS, but the thing you're trying to talk with only speaks HTTP. That's why you get the error.

Like this:

Iceweasel <---> WebScarab <---> Website

When webscarab talks to Website, the communication there is expected by WebScarab to be HTTPS, but instead it's plain HTTP, which it apparently can't handle.
