Hadoop Sandbox 2.6 port forwarding for HTTP so can reach external site eg: Github



Can you tell me which port forward is used for HTTP connect on the Sandbox?

Currently I am able to ping the GitHub now from my local windows machine, although unable to ping GitHub on my sandbox.

Thanks Ashal

The HDP Sandbox already comes with many ports already defined in the Network Rules. However you can refer to the following like to verify the Port forwarding on your Sandbox :

Hi Jay,

Thanks for prompt feedback. Why can't I ping external sites from my Virtual Box Sandbox 2.6 although I can from my windows CMD?

In the port forwarding under network rules, do you know which one is responsible for external http connection?

Any ideas? is there any other way for me to Install Mongo DB?

Please help.
