Try to access http://127.0.0.1:8888 welcome page, but get empty page on browsers

New Contributor

I just install HDP 2.3.2 ova in virtualbox on my win 7 desktop and mac pro laptop. VMs are up successfully, but I am not able to see welcome page with url http:\\127.0.0.1:8888. Browsers (Chrome 45, Firefox 36.0.4, Safari 9.0.2) just show an empty page on screen. I check the tutorials process is up and connects to port 8888. The other ports, like 8080 (ambari), & 4200 (console), do work fine with these browsers. Are there any configuration changes required to bring welcome/tutorials page up ?

@Lance Chen You can also access the tutorials from this page:

http://hortonworks.com/products/hortonworks-sandbox/#tutorial_gallery

It is the same tutorials that are found from welcome page.

To solve the port 8888 problem, perhaps:

Once that you have it up and running try the following:

  • set the networking mode to host-only
  • get the VBox ip after logging in (ssh root@127.0.0.1 -p 2222); then change root password, the ifconfg
  • use the ip in the URL to access, even if the cover page states to use the 127.0.0.1
  • Ensure that port forwarding is enabled for 8888 (as well as other ports)
