I've tried to run websec with the local proxy I have (wwwoffle) and it
works fine.

In order to debug this I could use some more information:
1. Please provide the exact output that websec outputs when it fails.
2. Can you provide the full network dump? this is a bit of a privacy
issue, so you'll need to trust me.

To provide the network dump you should use tcpdump with the command:
tcpdump -s 0 -w websec.dump -i lo port 8080

Ofcourse if the proxy is on another port than 8080 you should change the
number, if the proxy is not on your own computer, you should change the
interface from lo to your network interface, usually eth0 or ppp0.
