Plotly-Dash app refuses to connect to 127.0.0.1:8050

This is the python test program (not using jupyter):

app = dash.Dash()
app.layout = html.Div(‘Dash Test’)
if name == ‘main’:
app.run_server(debug=True)

I’m trying this in VS Code in debug mode on Ubuntu 20.04, using python3

When I start this it says this in the terminal:

  • Serving Flask app “dashtest” (lazy loading)
  • Environment: development
  • Debug mode: on

When I try connecting to http://127.0.0.1:8050 the browser (Brave) says:
This site can’t be reached
127.0.0.1 refused to connect.
ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED

tcpdump has this:

I’ve also tried this with debug=False and it makes no difference.

Plotly-only programs work fine.

thanks, Bob

Try:
if name == ‘main’:
app.run_server(debug=True, use_reloader=False)
