[IPython-User] websocket problem in remote html notebook with Mac OS X Safari

Hi all,

I'm running a notebook server as discussed in the 
complete with the openssl certificate.

The server is on one Mac, and I am trying to connect from another, all 
running OS X Lion.

I *can* attach to the server through the Chrome browser, but when I try 
to use Safari it fails.

To be specific, the I can log into the server and get to the IPython 
Notebook list screen, and when I click "New Notebook", it sets up the 
Notebook screen, but gives me a popup entitled "Websocket Closed", with 
the message:

"Websocket connection to 
wss://<server.name>:<port>/kernels/<bunch-of-hex-chars> could not be 
You will NOT be able to run code.
Your browser may not be compatible with the websocket version in the 
server, or if the url does not look right, there could be an error in 
the server's configuration."

The same error occurs even on the same machine as the server, accessed 
through localhost:<port>

Any ideas?
