Try disabling tor. I don't know (a) that it works over a tor connection,
and (b) if the tor folks perhaps block it for some reason.

Agreed. I doubt it blocks it explicitly, but I would not be surprised
if the connection required you to be on the IP address from which you
clicked the 'Test Drive' button or the SUSE Studio login. The reason I
believe this is possible is that if you enable networking for the
virtual machine you are REQUIRED to access it (SSH for example) from the
IP address that showed up earlier in the session (to keep arbitrary
stinkers from accessing test-driven VMs before the owners do). TOR's
purpose is to randomize your connections, so it's likely you've never
had the same IP twice when going to SUSE Studio and if there is a
similar restriction on Test Drive in general then that's likely the issue.

Good luck.

I'm curious. Would then this be a problem for those people that are on
ADSL, and which provider changes forcibly their IP now and then?

Hi
But the change of your ip address is highly unlikely during a session
(which is what tor does), the change normally happens on a ADSL router
disconnect.

If your IP address changed during a session, yes, you'd lose your
connection to the testdrive instance.

I've just built an appliance and started testdrive, and I'm also seeing
the same error message - at least initially. I waited a few seconds past
it, and the VM came up.

So, the next question would be this - which node does it say you're
connecting to? (For example, the testdrive I just started is at the URL
http://node47.susestudio.com/testdrive/start/[...] - node47 is what I'd
be looking to know if I asked myself this question).

It occurs to me that the plugin used is flash - you might try backreving
to the previous version in YaST's software manager. It could be that the
most recent version (which has known issues) is crashing and causing an
issue here.

Not sure at this point - you might click the 'forum' link from the SUSE
Studio page and post to the folks there - the team that manages the
systems follows that forum/mailing list (it's a little bit of both) and
can get more detailed on this issue with you.

And no procedure to recover, perhaps?

Restart the test drive. That's the recovery.
