    Unable to connect to the External Server(localhost)

    Raj Trivedi



      I am trying to connect to localhost as described in Leverage the power of Python in Tableau with TabPy | Tableau Software link.

      The link is very helpful but after following all the steps in it I am still not able to connect to the localhost from the Tableau.


      Screenshots for your reference:

      1. Localhost created and same trying to connect from Tableau


      2. Connection throws an error as below:

      3. Same works fine on my browser:



      Please Note:

      1.     I tried bot and localhost on while connecting.

      2.     I am trying it at my work behind a proxy enabled network. I think tableau software is not able to connect to localhost but I don't know how to configure Tableau Desktop to comply with my proxy authentication. I tried maintaining HTTP_PROXY, HTTPS_PROXY and NO_PROXY as system variables but that didn't work.


      Please help.


      Thanks in advance.
