Hortonworks Sandbox Forum

Sandbox at port 8000 not reachable

  • #47445

    Hi everyone,

    first off all: I am new to Hortonworks (and also Hadoop and everything actually…).
    I downloaded the most resent Sandbox and bootet it up in Virtual Box. It seems to start up without any problem. I can also access the “start page” of the sandbox at port 8888. But when I click the button “Go to Sandbox” there (which redirects to port 8000), the browser (Chrome by the way) gives me an error 404.
    netstat | grep 8000 does not return anything (netstat | grep 8888 also does not return anything which surprises me since the VM seems to listen to port 8888…).
    Do you have any idea what the issue might be?

    Thank you and best regard!

    Hi Chris,

    The sandbox should listen on both 8888 and 8000.
    It’s possible that the 8888 page is cached in your browser.

    Have you tried resetting the sandbox, logging in and checking that hue is running:

    ps -ef | grep hue

    but also check it is listening on those 2 ports.

    Hi Chris,

    thanks for your help – but the problem was actually a lot easier…
    On my local maschine (host) there was another programm listening to port 8000. After I changes the Virtual Box setting to listen to port 2345 (which then should be forwarded to port 8000 of the guest), the problem was solved!
    But still, thank you a lot!
