Internet Communication Error, Server Returned Nothing (no headers, no data) When Publishing to Server
Published: 01 Feb 2018 Last Modified Date: 02 Feb 2018
When publishing a workbook or datasource to Tableau server, the following error may occur,
Internet communication error, server returned nothing (no headers, no data) (<servername>).
Tableau Server 10.5.0
Ensure that when logging in to the server through Tableau Desktop, the URL begins with https (as opposed to http).
If Tableau Server is configured to use HTTPS, it may still be possible to log in from Tableau Desktop over http, but publishing will fail because Tableau server expects encrypted data but receives plain text.
