Hello, I need some help. I have a Java 1.8 test application that uses Selenium 3 and the Firefox Geckodriver. The tests work perfectly when I'm at work but fail when I'm trying to work at home. Since I work exclusively on a virtual machine, and have cloned the work virtual machine for my home development environment I know that it is not the environment. The only difference is that at home I have to use our company VPN, Cisco AnyConnect. Today at work I logged into our VPN and got the same results I get at home so I pretty sure it has something to do with the VPN. What happens is this, I issue the call to WebDriver "get" method, a window appears the vanishes and I get the follow stack trace.

Any idea what might be going on?

Thanks,
Spence

What I have tried:

I have search the web and can not find anything on this. I have also pretty much isolated the problem to be with Cisco Anyconnect and Selenium.

Thanks

You're really only going to get guesses to this one since you've taken a work machine out of the environment it was design and configured to run in.

My first guess, the browsers on the machine were configured to go through a proxy server at work, one which does not exist at home.
