Hortonworks Sandbox Forum

Unable to initiate the sandbox session from browser

  • #14732
    Ramesh Babu

    My sandbox is running and displays an IP ( which is to be used to initiate the sandbox session. However, I’m not able to get connected from the browser to the sandbox. I get an error Error 324 (net::ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE): The server closed the connection without sending any data.

    I’m using Chrome browser on a Mac OS X with the Virtualbox. Can someone please help?

    Hi Ramesh,

    Did you set up your VirtualBox networking as mentioned in the instructions? This is a VirtualBox setting, not a per VM setting.



    Hi Ted,

    Could you please expand on your comment regarding “VirtualBox setting vs VM setting ” ? I am also having the same issue. Also please direct me to the instructions.
