Splunk Add-on for Cisco IPS: Why am I unable to connect to IPS with "HTTP Error 401: Unauthorized"?

Path Finder

I'm using the Splunk Add-On for Cisco IPS to pull data from a number of IPS machines, but it seems like none of them are able to hold a connection, and I'm not getting any logs from them. Looking at Splunk's internal logs, it shows that Splunk connects successfully, but then immediately following every connection is an HTTP Error 401: Unauthorized...

Does anyone know what might be causing this problem?

I agree that it's connecting to the sensor... that looks to me like it's then timing out on the next step. I'd increase Splunk's timeout period in web.conf.

I'm assuming the timeout was no the answer. OP, did you get this to work?

I am receiving this error as well. Was a conclusion ever reached?

I ended up hard-coding the credentials into the python because Splunk was munging them.
