    Hi Soundarya,
    Are you able to access the HUE interface at That is what should show in the right pane when accessing the tutorials. See if you can go straight to that site.

    Hi Soundarya,,

    While accessing sandbox ,you are hitting ip
    And with IP, you are trying to access host m/c but here need to access VM .
    So instated of using use your VM IP address and then port 8000.
    It worked for me. :)
    Hoe it will work for you too.
