Can't access Splunk web interface from VMware host?

I have installed Splunk on a clean build of RHEL 7.0.4 in VMware Workstation 14 Pro and have verified that it is running. The issue I am having is that when I go to chrome and type in 'http://127.0.0.1:8000' it does not resolve. Is there a setting in VMware that I am missing that would allow me to open the web interface on my local machine?

Hi dford343,

You may want to check the server's hostname.
In your Command line, execute "hostname -I" to check the IP.
Then try accessing it to your browser by adding the port 8000 or 8001.
e.g. 192.168.84.1:8000

You can also check if the firewall may causing it or are the ports open.

I was able to figure it out. The issue was with my default firewall rules. I had to change several values is the table so that I could access it, but it works now.

Hi @eliav2,

This also works on Oracle Linux.
Is this advisable if I want to deploy on a live environment?

I have tried that and the IP that got assigned to the VM. Neither work.
