We’ve had bc_desktop working on our CentOS7 and CentOS6 clusters for some time from our CentOS 7 based on demand server. Since the upgrade to OOD 1.7, bc_desktop connects just tis there with cycling dots across the screen on the noVNC browser tab in Safari 13.1; It works quite well in Firefox 76.0.1 and Chrome 81.0.
Since updates to CentOS, OOD, MacOS and Safari all happened at about the same time, I can’t put a finger on what broke when. Oddly, Cluster Shell access, Jupiter Desktop, and Rstudio Desktops continue to work from Safari.
I’ve reduced this on a fresh Catalina Install on new hardware, as well as on my trusty old upgraded to Catalina 2015 MacBook Pro.
Has anyone else run into safari related connectivity problems?
