Path Finder

I am running Citrix Netscaler Add-on for Splunk and the splunkd.log shows following errors:

error: [Errno 10053] An established connection was aborted by the software in your host machine

I tried checking if it was related to Windows permissions issue related to execution of scripts, but it is not. Am I missing something?

The documentation about error code 10053 says,
The virtual circuit was terminated due to a time-out or other failure. The application should close the socket as it is no longer usable.

This is a known error on windows with indexers and deployment server.
Splunk asks the server to do name resolution on the clients in order to apply the whitelist/blacklists for the deployment rules, this resolution is not occurring so the socket stays open until a timeout.

Usually this error is occurring when only WINS is used with separate networks.
Can you check in your network settings, you may need a valid DNS resolving the forwarders/deployment clients hosts names ?

A quick workaround is to populate the host file on the server with the pairs IP / hostname in
