I wanted to use a rest driver, to poll a REST URL for objects on a
scheduled interval (the webservice should absolutely authoritative for
certain information on certain types of objects, we will never need to
tell the webservice anything, just read from it)

I installed the rest driver, entered some urls and ports and all that.

For some reason, it does heartbeat and stuff, but it never even tries to
connect to the webservice.

Where am I failing?
