Session cannot be created error message

#1

Hi All,

I am trying to connect to my set top box via chromedriver.exe (chromedriver=72.0.3626.69) from my laptop but I am unable to do so. My set top box has chromium and webdriver enabled. We used to run test scripts via selenium python/selenium java remote web driver libraries on the set-top box (headless chrome) - the channel surfing, the opening of tv guide, etc can be easily seen on the TV. The precondition is set-top should be webdriver enabled with the ethernet cable connected so that it gets IP address.

Currently we want to replicate the same structure via codeceptjs / webdriver libraries. Following is the configuration which I have tried :


  1. codecept.conf.js file

exports.config = {
tests: ‘./*_test.js’,
output: ‘./output’,
helpers: {

 WebDriver: {
   url: 'http://locahost',
   port: 9515,     
   smartWait: 30000,  
   waitForTimeout: 15000,
   keepBrowserState: true,
   restart: false,
   browser: 'chrome',      
   desiredCapabilities:{      
     chromeOptions: {
       args : ["--disable-gpu","--allow-file-access-from-files", "--disable-web-security", "--ignore-certificate-errors" ],
       debuggerAddress: "10.12.130.83:2999",  /* this is the ip address of set top box */
          
            
     }, 
        
   }
 },
MyHelper:{
  require: "./codecept_anupam.js"
}  

}
}


  1. codecept_anupam.js

const Helper = codecept_helper;
const event = require(‘codeceptjs’).event;

class MyHelper extends Helper {
constructor () {
super();
}

_beforeSuite (suite) {
console.log(’_beforeSuite’);
this.suiteTitle = suite.title;
console.log(this.helpers);
console.log(this.helpers[‘WebDriver’]);
if (!this.target)
{
//this.target = this.helpers[‘Puppeteer’];
this.target = this.helpers[‘WebDriver’];
this.page = this.target.browser;
//this.page.send(‘Security.setIgnoreCertificateErrors’, { ignore: true });
}
//return this.target.amOnPage(‘file:///C:/development/Codefest/app/client/launch-emulator.html’);

}

}

module.exports = MyHelper;
;

I have made sure Selenium server is up and running with chromedriver . I have used the following command.


java -Dwebdriver.chrome.driver=chromedriver.exe -jar selenium-server-standalone-3.141.59.jar -port 9515


The following is the error message:-

Heya,

Can you try using webdriver-manager or selenium-standalone package from NPM and see if you get different results please?

https://www.npmjs.com/package/webdriver-manager <= you can start it detached or control it programmatically and it makes use of async/await.

Looking forward to the outcome
