Connection to refused


I am running MAPD image from my Mac with my company VPN turned on. I get the connection refused error (see attached png). Does this mean that in order to use MAPD image, I must have connection to internet?


Hi kctung,

The insert_sample_data script does require internet access, but that is only for downloading the sample datasets that we provide. Internet access is generally not required* if using your own datasets.

*) If using MapD Immerse, charts containing maps currently load the map tiles from an external server. This restriction will be loosened in a future version. pointmap, geo heatmap (not available currently in CPU mode), and choropleth.
