I was able to work through the tutorials on my home machine OK, but the exact same setup isn't working on my work machine. I create a fresh conda environment "conda create -n dagster python=3.9" and then pip install dagster dagit. (I've also tried dagster from conda-forge.) At home, it works fine, but om my work machine (both windows) starting the code server times out after 45 seconds with the following.
(dagster3) Z:\foo\dagster>dagit -f
Using temporary directory Z:\foo\dagster\tmp96vdgvk3 for storage. This will be removed when dagit exits.
To persist information across sessions, set the environment variable DAGSTER_HOME to a directory to use.

I wondered if maybe a port was blocked and tried running with "dagster api grpc --port-num 24266" and then "dagit --grpc-port 24266" I can see the code server listening on the port
PS H:\> netstat -ano | select-string 24246
TCP              LISTENING       23732
TCP    [::1]:24246            [::]:0                 LISTENING       23732
But I can an error from dagit that it can't find the rpc server.
The above exception was caused by the following exception:
grpc._channel._InactiveRpcError: <_InactiveRpcError of RPC that terminated with:
status = StatusCode.UNAVAILABLE
details = "failed to connect to all addresses"

OK, this drove me crazy. It seems to be a web proxy issue. We have a web proxy so I (and almost everyone in the company) has http_proxy and https_proxy set. I was able to get it to run by unsetting them as suggested by this grpc stackoverflow post. which recommends passing the grpc.enable_http_proxy option.
Copy code
channel = grpc.insecure_channel('localhost:5005', options=(('grpc.enable_http_proxy', 0),))
However, it looks like the options to grpc.insecure_channel are hardcoded in DagsterGrpcClient. Not sure what the proxy impact would be on performance.
In case anyone else has this problem.... this was my issue. It resolved by setting no_proxy=,localhost. Thumbs-upped the issue on github.
