Root notebook question - port and ip parameter

Dear Danilo and Enrico.

I have an problem with usage of the root notebook with port and ip parameters.
I can run jupyter notebook remotely without problem, providing ip and port parameters (see below):

jupyter notebook --no-browser --ip= --port=8888

Is it possible to specify these parameters using root --notebook? I tried:

root --notebook --no-browser --ip= --port=8888

Command failed with error message:
socket.error: [Errno 99] Cannot assign requested address

Checking root --help I’m not sure if it is possible at all.
I assume that parameters port and ip are not parsed. Do you know if it is possible to provide these parameters
to root? I tried to find answers in forum, but I did not find.
Maybe I can parse these parameters in some jupyter config file?

Thank you for answer.


ROOT Version: Not P 6.10/08
Platform: linux
Compiler: gcc version 6.2.0

Hi Marian,

these options are not parsed by ROOT: the feature you are after is a bit advanced.
Why isn’t the invocation with Jupyter adequate for you?


Halo Danilo.

Thank you for answer. I’m running Jupyter directly.
