IP Reputation App for Splunk Enterprise: Are there other ports besides port 54 I need to open for the app to work?


I have installed the IP Reputation App in my Splunk server which is behind a firewall. I have allowed port 54 for DNS resolution, but the Threatscore is still 0. May I know if there are other ports I need to open for the app to work?

Thank you.

Hi Leo,

usually not. it's going over DNS Protocol.

If you check directly with from your Splunk Server a lookup: you should get back.

API Documentation:

The lookup script is in the app directory /bin/ and calls the socket.gethostbyname command.

`dns_response = socket.gethostbyname($dns_query)`
