eikon.eikonError.EikonError: Error code -1 | Port number was not identified. Check if Eikon Desktop or Eikon API Proxy is running.

I'm trying to get timeseries data in my local-django project, however when I'm trying to get the data I got this error message:

eikon.eikonError.EikonError: Error code -1 | Port number was not identified. Check if Eikon Desktop or Eikon API Proxy is running.

After creating a new app_key, I have write a lite code in Jupyter in order to understand if my connection works well, and this is what I get:

but I get some data.

However if use the same code in the Django project I get this error

eikon.eikonError.EikonError: Error code -1 | Port number was not identified. Check if Eikon Desktop or Eikon API Proxy is running.

I'm running the django application server on PORT 8080, if I remember well Eikon use the 8000

python manage.py runserver 8080

Thank you for your help.

@c.aydemir

Thank you very much for your feedback. We believe we identified the root cause of the problem, which manifests with Python 3.8+. The root cause happened to be in the dependencies of Eikon Data APIs for Python library (requests-async, http3 and nest-asyncio).
The problem has been addressed in Eikon Data APIs for Python library v1.1.6, which is now available on PyPI. Would you be so kind as to upgrade eikon module on your machine to v1.1.6 and see if it works? I'd very much appreciate if you could post your experience back on this thread.

Thank you Alex and all! After updating the Eikon API to v1.1.6 the download works fine.

Once again thank you all for your support.

Hi @c.aydemir What version of Eikon library and Eikon are you using? Some users have been experiencing issues with eikon library 1.1.4/1.1.5 and eikon 4.0.52. Please could you try dropping back eikon library to 1.1.2 (pip install eikon ==1.1.2) and let me know how you get on.

@c.aydemir have you had a chance to try with eikon v1.1.2? thx

Yes, but it doesn't work.

This is the error that I get:

Hi,

eikon 1.1.6.post1 was just released and is available on pypi.org.

You can update with "pip install --upgrade --no-cache-dir eikon"

It should fix issues with Python 3.8

The combination Python 3.8.5, Python library v1.1.6.post2 and Eikon desktop v4.0.52 is not working for me.

Hi,

One dependency introduced a breaking change last Monday: httpx 0.15

If you have this version, a workaounr is to downgrade to 0.14.2 (pip install httpx==0.14.2)

An eikon 1.1.6.post3 will published soon to fix it
