I am trying to receive data from a remote machine on the local network. In order to do so I configured a receiver to listen on port 9997. This is shown below in Figure 1. However, when I check netstat I see that the port is not actually listening for incoming connections, Figure 2. Does anyone know what is going wrong?
Also, I should I mention that I am using Splunk 6.0 on Windows 7 operating system (OS). Figure 1: Splunk set to listen on 9997
