    Cannot connect Tableau server

      I installed Tableau server and professional desktop 7.0 trial version at same server. The OS is windows 2003 SP2 64 edition. Tableau server installation was following default configuration, such as 'NT AUTHORITY\NetworkService' user , port 80 and local authentication .

      My web brower can connect to server sucessfully, either using ip addrss or server name, or localhost; But the desktop failed. In desktop,  I click menu 'Server -> Log on ', and input the server name:port number, an error message is returned as 'can not connect to Tableau server, please check the server name and port number and try again.' I have also tried ip and localhost, but with same error.

      I have granted 'publish' privilege to this user.

      Is there any way I can try to resolve the issue?

       

      Thanks!
