Running Streamlit with selenium on a virtual machine


I created a streamlit app with a webscraper function realized with selenium.

When I run the code on my local machine everything works well.

  • Microsoft edge is opened
  • data is read
  • data can be processed

When I run the exactly same code on the virtual machine and stream the app it does not work.
Microsoft Edge is opened and it is shown that the browser is externally controlled but it seems that no data is read.

I get the following error messages:

DevTools listening on ws://

Does anybody have an idea how this problem can solved?


I would guess this is the issue. Are you accessing a secured piece of content? If so, your local laptop might have the security done correctly (i.e. whatever you use to access a VPN), but the VM does not have the same configuration settings present.


Hi Randy,

thanks for the quick reply. I found another error in my script where I tried to access a wrong variable what had nothing to do with the access.
Although I get the accessing errors everything is running now.
