Unable to connect to Jupyter notebook

I’m running the following commands:

hailctl dataproc start project-name --region us-east4 --zone us-east4-c --packages gnomad 
hailctl dataproc connect project-name notebook --zone=us-east4-c

These run just fine, but I am unable to connect to the Jupyter notebook with the following error:

# This site can’t be reached

The webpage at **http://localhost:8123/** might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.


A few months ago this process worked without any problems on this same machine. Any ideas what could be causing this?

Thank you very much!

Any help with this would be much appreciated!

Any tips on what could be going wrong here?

If anybody else encountered this issue, the solution that worked for me was to first create the instance with:
hailctl dataproc start project-name --zone my-region --packages 'ipython<8.22',gnomad
