Deployment error in bokeh-server with --ip (0.9.3)

On a remote Ubuntu server I’m running bokeh-server --ip “” --filter-logs -d (the latter options for debugging) and some script to connect to it and generate pages with (streaming) plots. When starting my script it looks like bokeh-server is running w3m (a text browser) in a terminal to display the web page with the plots (would be nice to stop that on a server, maybe). So I’ve found the generated URL for this by inspecting this output in the “link to this” link, but when I open it in a local browser, I get the following traceback below. In my script I use output_server(‘foo’).

I’ve looked here: and then added ?public=true to my URL, but still get the same error. Looks like I must be doing something completely wrong. Any ideas?
