    Hi Manoj,

    Do you mean ?

    Can you log into the Virtual Machine console and run ifconfig and use this IP address and let me know if that works?

    HI Manoj,

    Please tell us:

    What operating system?
    What version of operating system?
    What browser?
    What version of browser?
    Description of the symptoms and problems you see

    Note that Sandbox does not support IE 10. We find that Chrome and Firefox are most successful.

    Hi Manoj,

    When you ran ifconfig was the IP displayed as ?
    If you are using NAT then the IP / URL you should use is

    If you run with Bridged networking then you should use the IP address assigned to the Virtual Machine when you check ifconfig

    I faced the same issue earlier. Please use the VM player. It will work.
