Hello,

I am getting the following error when trying to run ek.set_app_key('MY_APP_KEY')

Hello @Julius.uotila,

Please confirm that Eikon is running and Eikon proxy is listening on port 9060, as this is where API is trying to connect according to this info, and failing.

Refer to article Eikon Data API(Python) Troubleshooting | Refinitiv for more details and helpful hints.
