How To Launch Browser From HortonWorks Sandbox

New Contributor

I have just downloaded the HortonWorks Sandbox. I have reset the password also as shown below :

I am not sure how to proceed further from here. As per the instruction, I need to launch a browser and navigate to

http://127.0.0.1:8880/

How can I launch a browser from here ?

Please suggest.

@Praveen K Singh find the ip of the sandbox using "ifconfig" and use that ip instead of 127.0.0.1 in your browser (Launch the browser in your local system).

@Praveen K Singh

Sandbox does not comes by default with GUI. You need to open browser on your machine (and not from Sandbox) and try accessing the url.

You can check if you have "elinks" package installed in Sandbox then you can issue below command from cli -

# elinks http://127.0.0.1:8880/

Else if you want to access GUI the you can have "yum groupinstall 'X Window System' 'GNOME'"

You do have option of configuring VNC server to remotely access GUI - pls check - https://www.howtoforge.com/vnc-server-installation-centos-6.5

Make sure the ambari port is 8080 in the url. --> http://127.0.0.1:8080
