IBM WATSON VR Problem :’s Server IP address could not be found

Well, I am now on my 2nd week in IBM Data Science Professional Certificate and I am supposed to download IBM Watson to do some visual recognition exercise. However I follow the exact steps mentioned in the reading part and when I create the resource and everything the page crash and give me that message “’s Server IP address couldn’t be found”. I hope that someone could help me with this.


Please note that I am from Egypt and the nearest region available is Frankfurt.  I am not sure if this has anything to do with the problem or not but I thought it might worth mentioning.

Hi Omar,

sorry to hear about your issues with using Watson VR. I suggest you delete both the Watson VR and Watson Studio and redo the exercise and post in the Course discussion forum in case you are still encountering error.
