    Using Tabcmd Examples - Not clear

    Masson Liang

      Hello all,


      I am a new Tableau user and am trying the "Using Tabcmd" instructions here: http://kb.tableausoftware.com/articles/knowledgebase/using-tabcmd


      I am having issues sending out e-mail messages under the "Use tabcmd to send email messages" instructions.


      I am trying to execute this portion:


      tabcmd login -s http://tableauserver:80 -u admin -p admin

      tabcmd get "/views/Wow/SummaryReports.pdf" -f "progressReport.pdf"

      febootimail.exe -SMTP yourSMTPhost.yourcompany.com -TO "recipient1@yourcompany.com; recipient2@yourcompany.com;recipient3@yourcompany.com" -FROM sender@yourcompany.com -SUBJECT "Generated Tableau View - Tableau Server Automated Alert System (TSAAS)" -ATTACH " C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Command Line\progressReport.pdf" -BODY"this is the text of the body"


      I have run the first two lines thus far in the Command Prompt, but am having issues starting with the third line, "febootimail.exe...."


      I am receiving the following message:


      "Couldn't connect to server, Error: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it"
