Encountered error 'Cannot connect to proxy', error(97, 'Address family not supported by protocol')' while uploading data

Path Finder

Hi everyone,

One of my client encountered the above error while trying to upload a csv file into Splunk. Has anyone else encountered this issue before? Any feedbacks are much appreciated!

Thanks

sounds like their proxy server doesn't allow them to upload csv files to the Splunk server. They should work with their proxy or security team to whitelist the Splunk server.

Hi jkat54,

Thanks for the suggestion. In the end we solved the issue by setting

no_proxy=127.0.0.1,localhost in splunk-launch.conf

Thanks!
