It seems no matter how I change the server_url for the appium broker in my caps it always defaults to localhost. Basically I'm trying to set the server URL to another another that has appium up and running.

    desired_caps = {

        caps:       {

            platformName: 'iOS',

            deviceName: '', 

            bundleId: ',

            user: '', 

            password: 'password',

            takesScreenshot: false,


        appium_lib: {

            server_url: '’, 



    @driver =

    @driver.start_driver.manage.timeouts.implicit_wait = 10

i do a start_driver
and then do driver.get url
appium_lib i guess is for appium server
if you are actually trying to talk to appium itself running on a different server, i am not sure
i just run locally on a different port
i think you need remote webdriver
