Is the firewall enabled on the server? Seems like something is blocking port 8000

Well, it's looking to the loopback @ 8000 - are you able to try disabling firewall temporarily to see if the connectivity issue in GNS3 is resolved? If not we can investigate further, it just seems like the obvious first-step.

I turned off Firewall on the Laptop but the issue is still on

"It says it can't connect to your IOU VM. So, is your IOU VM started up and does it have ip address 192.168.56.101? to check, log in to your IOU VM as user root, password cisco and enter the command

ifconfig


When I upgraded to gns3-1.3.0 I had the same issue as you. I checked the IP address of the IOU VM and it was .100, not .101. So I checked the Virtual box dhcp server settings and it had the dhcp range beginning at 192.168.100. I have no logical explanation why that would change when upgrading gns3. But it did. no woory, its super easy to fix


On the VOracle VM VirtualBox Manager, from the "File" Menu, choose "Preferences" >> "Network" section >> "Host-only networks" tab >> Double click the "VirtualBox Host-only Ethernet Adapter" in order to edit it >> "DHCP Server" tab >> "Lower Adress Bound: should be 192.168.56.101. If not, make it so and retart your IOU VM"


Review that and verify your own settings as per the above.

This is different than the IOU VM question.

in the previous GNS3 version, you link GNS3 to IOS which is on your computer , then drag  a router to the topology window and start the device then open he console..
So I am trying to do the same, the only difference is the GNS3  now is the latest version
