Pointing a Palo Alto Firewall to the free local version of Splunk?

Just need help getting our company's Panorama logs into the free download of Splunk on my machine. Need to use it as a test case.

Thanks,

For most firewalls, though technically we probably could install a forwarder, it is recommended by security experts to set the device up to send it's logs by syslog. You will have to look at the manufacturers instructions on how to do that.

Then you can set splunk to listen for syslog. The easiest way to do this is explained here

I'm not trying to get the app to work. I'm trying to point the logs to Splunk in the first place and use Splunk to aggregate the Palo Alto Firewall's logs without that app.

Not familiar with the app myself, but it seems there are installation instructions on the app's page? http://splunk-base.splunk.com/apps/22327/splunk-for-palo-alto-networks

For starters, when I select "Add Data", I have no idea where to start. My initial thought was to use the Universal Forwarder, but it's a dedicated device, not running on a server.

Well what more specifically has you stuck now?
