I installed Qlik Sense on Win 8.1 (12GB RAM). App needs 3 minutes to start and returns Could not Reach http://localhost:4848/hub with error (-118). "
Microsoft Firewall is off.
Antivirus is off.
Hello Ivo - sorry for the delay - your post was caught in the moderation queue.
Can you check your internet connection settings (control panel) and see if you have bypass proxy for local addresses checked. It may look different in Windows 8, but should look something like this:
Let us know.
Let's delete all cache in your browser (i.e.: in Chrome > Ctrl + Shift + Del) then restart the browser.
And if in Windows 8 then right click > Run as administrator (even if your account is already administrator)
Can you telnet localhost or 127.0.0.1 or your hostname to port 4848 and see whether it responds?
EDIT: With Qlik Sense Desktop open, otherwise it won't respond.
And yes, I agree with Daniel that something in your network/computer is blocking that connection: proxy, firewall, antivirus, antivirus' firewall or any other policy that does not allow you to open ports or run software that open ports even if it is localhost.
