App won't load - websockets / firewall? / odd URLs?


Getting some odd errors trying to load my shiny app. Can you explain this? What is ecstatic_tereshkova ?


Hi @Ala_Arab,

Some clarification for this URL:

  • wss: secure web socket protocol, which is basically HTTPS with an Upgrade.
  • ecstatic_tereshkova: a container name generated by docker. ShinyProxy uses this name in its URLs to know which container to proxy to.

As for the error message: maybe there is a firewall in place that blocks the wss protocol?
