Eikon Data API via Python URL blocked

Hi all,
I've a problem with using the Eikon Data API via Python. Every call just gives me an error like 'Error code 403 | Client Error' [...] 'URL Blocked', referring to http://127.0.0.1:9060/api/v1/data
However, it seems to me that this is not the URL, to which the library is making its request. How can I instruct our cyber security department to allow theser requests by the python library?

Hi @josef.jauk01,

The library does indeed make a connection to a local Eikon instance to get the data. You can request your network team to allow local network connection from local python application - i.e. whitelist connections to loopback IP 127.xxx.xxx.xxx and domain localhost.
