I am facing an issue while running the rsDriver() function to open up the chrome browser.
library("RSelenium") library("wdman") mybrowser <- rsDriver(browser=c("chrome"), chromever="80.0.3987.16",port = 443L) remDr <- mybrowser$client remDr$navigate("https://google.co.in/") Sys.sleep(2)
When I run this code on my machine while connected to my home network the code works as expected. But when I run this code from my office network, the rsDriver(browser=c("chrome"), chromever="80.0.3987.16",port = 443L) gives me the below error and I am stuck at this point.
checking Selenium Server versions: BEGIN: PREDOWNLOAD Error in open.connection(con, "rb") : Timeout was reached: [www.googleapis.com] Operation timed out after 10000 milliseconds with 0 out of 0 bytes received
I tried connecting through the company's proxy with the below code but still no luck. I tried using the port numbers 4444,4445,4567 but still the same error.
cprof <- list(chromeOptions = list(args = list("--proxy-server= gproxy.go.company.org:8080"))) mybrowser <- rsDriver(browser=c("chrome"), chromever="80.0.3987.16", port = 443L,extraCapabilities = cprof)
It would be very helpful someone can help me in understanding the issue and suggest me a solution. Am I missing something in the code. Any help would be highly appreciated. Also do let me know for any additional information required.
