Cannot access Jupyter Notebook on Windows DSVM from local machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to access a Jupyter Notebook running on a Azure Windows DSVM from my local web browser. However, I cannot establish any connection to it.

    Following the documentation, I carried out the following steps:

    1. I started the virtual machine on the Azure portal and successfully set up a remote desktop session with the RDP file provided on the Azure portal.
    2. As the script on the DSVM Desktop had seemed to have no effect and had closed immediately, I started Jupyter from the Command Prompt by entering "juypter notebook". The web browser opened the Jupyter environment successfully at localhost:8888. I could use Jupyter without any problems on the virtual machine.
    3. Back on my local machine, I entered the following on my web browser: "https://12.345.678.90:8888", where 12.345.678.90 stands for the IP of my DSVM (retrieved from the Azure portal). I checked that port 8888 is listed on the Azure portal under "Networking" > "Inbound Port Rules" with the Name "default-allow-jupyter". The only thing my web browser (Firefox) reported is a connection timeout. Changing the port to something else posed no remedy.

    What am I missing?

  • There could be few hacks to do this, but unfortunately this is not supported currently in the Windows DSVM unlike the Ubuntu VMs where full fledged jupyter hub is supported.

  • That is unfortunate but thanks for the answer. Can you point me to some documentation where this is specified? The only hint I got is that from this page


    where it says that

    >> You can also access Jupyter on Linux editions of the DSVM remotely from a web browser by visiting https://<Full Domain Name or IP Address of the DSVM>:8000 on Ubuntu.

  • I found the documentation myself:


    The list states for "JupyterHub (Multi-user notebook server)":

    • Windows Edition: No
    • Linux Edition: Yes
