Hi all! I am stuck...

As Tasos suggested, I started working on an autologin-script to run my scans with,
The funny part is, that when I execute the steps with irb, the browser is openend and the the login works.
If I run it within my scan, I have different errors, and the login is not working.

I attached the scripts and the log. So where should I go from here to figure out, what goes wrong?
I guess, it is possible to login, but it seems, I am missing something

Thanks in advance for any help!

    Arachni doesn't use the same browser as when you run the script in a standalone fashion.
    Could I have a look at the web application to debug the issue?

    It is not that easy, as there is now public access to that application.
    I will try to figure this out with my managers. In the meantime, can I provide you some more information?

    In the mean time: How would one debug such an issue? I tryed to print the content of the browser, which worked, but it showed me only the login page. So I guess I am missing something.

    You can try taking screenshots every now and then in the login script: 'screenshot.png'

    Without access to the application though there's not much I can do.
