    I have used 3 different browser, chrome, IE and firefox none of them work.
    I have also disable the firewall in my computer but still does not work.

    I had the same problem (desktop set-up: Windows 8.1 Pro/Hyper-V/Sandbox 2.1).

    Followed Martin’s suggestion of adding :8000 to the Sandbox network adapter IP address and it worked.

    Thanks to Martin!

    I had some similar issues. I could download and install the VM OK, start it – and even ping it and logon from a Mac Terminal session OK. But when I clicked the “Go To Sandbox” link at I got an “unable to connect” message.

    Then I noticed that the link was re-directing to – and so I over-typed it with and this works. So I think that the “Go To Sandbox” link on the web front-end is broken.

    BTW – I also added the following entry to the Hosts file on my Mac, on the advice of a colleague who knows rather more about IP networking than I do – Hortonworks+Sandbox+2.0+VMware

    Hope all of this helps,




    Hi Lucas,
    Please make sure your VM is running and that you can ping
