            Client connects and disconnects instantly with no error message?
            Asked 2019-Feb-25 at 15:49

            New to twisted and experimenting. I'm trying to setup a simple websocket for a messaging system, using a twisted.application and a protocols.basic.LineReceiver.

            Problem: Twisted application connects the client, and disconnects it right after (?)

            Client logs when trying to connect:

            WebSocket is supported by your Browser!

            Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at ws://

            Connection is closed...

            Server logs when client tries to connect:

            You're running a plain TCP echo server. It accepts TCP connections and echoes back to them whatever they send.

            You're running a WebSocket client. It opens a TCP connection and begins to speak the WebSocket protocol (starting with an HTTP-based handshake) to the server. It expects a WebSocket protocol response to this handshake.

            The TCP echo server sends the client's WebSocket handshake data back to it. This is not a correct WebSocket handshake response. The WebSocket client concludes (correctly) the server is not a WebSocket server and disconnects.

            Take a look at something like for libraries geared towards working with WebSockets. You can even find an example WebSocket echo server in the documentation,
