Interactive Web Terminal and Docker Machine runner possible?

Hey everyone

We are using Docker Machine runner to autoscale VM runners in the cloud. I am now trying to set things up for using the interactive web terminal. On a standard docker/shell runner in the cloud that only runs on one VM the debug shell opens up as expected, but if I want to open the terminal for a job running on the docker machine runner it doesn’t work.

I just see an empty black window for 10 minutes or so and then I see “Connection failure”.

Gitlab version: SaaS (14.4.0-pre)
Runner: Docker machine runner

I don’t fully understand how the feature actually works from the documentation and in absence of any logs I can’t really debug this.

Is this feature even supported for the runner I am using?
Looking at the compatibility matrix I am unsure.

So Gitlab Runner opens up the port 8093 on the VM that doesn’t actually run the job but provisions the VM dynamically that will run the job, how can I configure this in order for the shell terminal to actually be able to connect to the docker container on the host that runs the job?
