Getting Data In

Why am I getting error "'Cannot connect to proxy.', error(10061, 'No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it')" trying to upload the Search Tutorial sample data?

Hi Sumit, have you tried restarting Splunk before uploading the tutorial data? This seems to have fixed it for some users.
