I want to run Splunk on an Azure VM and use it from the browser on my desktop PC. In the Azure VM I can get to the login page at mysplunkserver:8000. However, from my desktop I cannot get to mysplunkserver:8000.cloudapp.net. I changed the Splunk web port to 80. Now I can login at mysplunkserver from the VM but I still cannot login from my desktop at mysplunkserver.cloudapp.net.
Any ideas what I need to do?
Please see this answer:
Also, I noticed that you have the port in the wrong location of you URL. Once the endpoints are configured, the public URL should resemble this: https://my-splunk-instance.cloudapp.net:8000
You can easily do this as I've done it both for Windows and Linux, you just need to open the ports.
By default ports 8000 and 8089 are not open, you must open them up in order to allow external access. You will need to do one or both of the following:
Let us know if this doesn't work for you!
Are you able to ping the site from your desktop? Try to get use PING and Telnet splunk_server 80.
Both will allow you to get the status whether it is reachable or not. If not try to turn off the firewall and connect. Mostly it happens due to firewall or connectivity route.
