Hi both Thanks for getting in touch, we have now resolved the issue so if you try again now you should be able to launch the labs.

Hello, I have this issue with the following labs: https://portswigger.net/web-security/clickjacking/lab-multistep?lablaunchfailure=1 https://portswigger.net/web-security/clickjacking/lab-exploiting-to-trigger-dom-based-xss?lablaunchfailure=1

Thanks for your message. We've tested those labs and they are launching successfully. How many other labs had you launched/did you have open around the time you tried to launch them?

Thanks for your message. Were you able to open any labs before you started seeing this message? If so, how many did you open?

Hi PortSwigger Team, I am getting the following message when trying to access the labs. The issue persists almost for most of the labs. Request to fix the issue. Apologies, the lab could not be started in a timely manner. Please try again or contact us if the problem persists. Thanks!

Hi both How many labs had you launched prior to seeing this message? Which labs were you trying to launch when you saw this message?

Andrew | Last updated: Mar 14, 2022 05:59PM UTC

Which lab? Lab: Basic SSRF against the local server In fact if is showing this error message for any lab I'm trying to open. How many labs had you launched prior? Sometimes I launch 3, 4, sometimes 1 lab and the next lab I try to launch I get this message. The only thing I can mention is that I don't complete the lab before moving on to the next one. Not sure if that's a factor in seeing this error message.

Thanks for your message. You can only have 3 labs active at any one time, if you don't finish a lab then you will need to wait 15 minutes for it to become inactive. I hope this helps explain what you're seeing.

That does help, I'm giving a presentation on SSRF today to my development teams and now I know I need to complete each lab prior to moving on to the next one. Thank you!

Hello! I have the same problem in all labs, I closed every window and waited 20 minutes but the problem still

Hi, I'm also having the same problems. I've quit several times and the problems persist. Lab link: https://portswigger.net/web-security/clickjacking/lab-multistep?lablaunchfailure=1 https://portswigger.net/web-security/clickjacking/lab-exploiting-to-trigger-dom-based-xss Please check.

Hi both Thanks for getting in touch. I've just been running some tests with the labs you mentioned and everything seems to be behaving as expected. If you log out of your PortSwigger account, close all tabs, and wait for 20-30 minutes before logging in again, are you still seeing the same issue now?

Thanks for your message. Have you tried to start a number of different labs? You can only have 3 labs active at any one time, so this may explain what you are seeing. If you log out of your PortSwigger account and close your browser, wait for 15-30 minutes and log back in again (which should allow any active labs to time out) are you able to launch a new lab?
