### Can't finish the setup properly

Good afternoon;
I'm having a problem finishing the setup lab; I followed all steps written without any problems, and when I launch pyspark in the command line (so step 5), the Jupyter Notebook is said to be running at the good address. However when I copy paste the http://iccluster041.iccluster.epfl.ch:xxxx link in my browser and replacing the x's with the four last digits of my SCIPER, and trying to access the page, I always get the "The connection has timed out" error.

I followed the tutorial again and again, all of them giving the same result; is there a way to correct that?
Best,
Youssef

When I replace xxxx with the four last digits of your SCIPER, I do get to the login screen of the Jupyter notebook. This means it works and is accessible from my side. So your issue most likely lies on your local machine.

Make sure you are connected to the EPFL network (e.g., via VPN) and maybe clear your cache.

I was connected throught the VPN; clearing the cache did not help, however what you said gave me an idea and I tried launching it on Edge (which I never used). It finally worked ; thank you
