Hi Yaswanth.

Are you trying to connect to a SUT when running your script? If so, what SUT are you trying to connect to? Note that you cannot use your local machine as a SUT as well as running EPF on it. If this is what you are trying to do then you will either need to use a different machine as your SUT or you will need to create a VM on your machine and use that as a SUT.

I was using SUT and EPF from same machine
Thanks for the information

hey there,

I do a lot of testing via my local vm which is setup with VirtualBox, installed windows 10 pro, then gave that vm a static IP address. I then set up the SUT using that IP address and it works perfectly for me.

However, you can use a local host ip like if you are using Ubuntu as a VM via VirtualBox. The setup includes a lot of Sudo commands to get running, also works well for me
