I am trying to run R in a browser using <IP address>:8787. I have it installed on ambari, but it still does not open. It just gives me an error saying: this site can't be reached. How can I run r in browser?
Please check the 8787 port is listening with R process.
please run netstat -ntlp command in server
I'm glad that you want to help me! I am not sure, what it means that 8787 port is listening with R. How can I check this? I also ran the command.
yes Martin, can you run the same command with root user. it will list the PID No/Name in last column
stop firewall or add rule in firewall to accept the connections from outside in server if the firewall is running your server.
As per your above comment the port 8787 is running. Looks like the issue is with the iptables.
service iptables status -> if it is running
Stop iptables by using : service iptables stop
And now check if you are able to access the R UI from browser.
