Splunk App for Stream on local machine

New Member

I have Splunk Enterprise 6.5 installed on a dual nic server. Eth0 - management and Eth1 - monitoring (promiscuous mode). How do I point Splunk App for Stream to collect data from eth1 and not Wired Data input?

There seems to be information on how to do this on a remote machine using Universal/Stream Forwarders, but nothing about on a local machine.

Please advise
