I assume that the service it's trying to connect to is down or in some 
way unavailable.  What is the exact status?  If the server is reachable 
on that port but the http server is not running, a connection attempt 
will be instantly refused, there's no reason to wait for the timeout period.

In order for a full second to pass, the port must be completely 
unreachable, which means the server either needs to be down or it needs 
to be firewalled in a way that offers no response at all rather than a 
refusal.  Is this the case with the server that the Windows version is 
trying to contact?
