I'd like to display a Tableau Public URL in Salesforce. The URL itself works fine, but when I try to display it as a "Web Tab" or Visualforce page I get: "public.tableau.com refused to connect."

For the Web Tab I simply enter the link and click "preview."

For the Visualforce page, my code is:

<apex:iframe src="https://public.tableau.com/app/profile/sydney.howard/viz/shared/9NSZCTRQ3" scrolling="true" id="theIframe"/>

This is not our Tableau public link, just an example of what our Tableau Public page looks like: https://public.tableau.com/app/profile/sydney.howard/viz/shared/9NSZCTRQ3

This is a snapshot of the error page
