I assume by now you figured out that the webserver is not enabled.
If it is still an issue do the following:
cd c:\program files\splunk\bin
splunk enable webserver
When Splunk starts up you will see that there are two ports being opened instead of one; the mgmt port 8089 and the http port 8000
Yes it is local system installation.
Yes, I tried but it doesn't work.
I also checked if there are connections with the port 800 by running netstat -an | select-string 8000 and there aren't
Still feels that the port is not listening or blocked. Restart splunk from the command line, recheck the port the web is connecting to - 8000,8001,8002. Also check the web_service log
Follow These steps:
Open cmd as Administrator
C:\Windows\system32> cd C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin
C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin>splunk start
Splunk> Be an IT superhero. Go home early.
