Unable to connect to Splunk server via java sdk

Path Finder

Hi All,

I am trying to connect to Splunk (Search Head) via Java sdk.
But I received connection timeout error: java.lang.RuntimeException: Connection timed out: connect

Code:

HttpService.setSslSecurityProtocol(SSLSecurityProtocol.TLSv1_2);
ServiceArgs serviceArgs = new ServiceArgs();
serviceArgs.setHost("companysplunkSearchHead.net");  // without http
serviceArgs.setPort(8089);
serviceArgs.setUsername("user");
serviceArgs.setPassword("password");

Service service = Service.connect(serviceArgs);

The Splunk instance is on OpenShift ( I tried also to: create a new route for the port 8089 and also set allowRemoteLogin=always)
But the problem of connectivity still persists.

The same code works in local.

Could you please help me?

Thanks 🙂

This means your request did not get a response within some (default) timeframe. The reasons that no response was received is likely to be one of:

  1. The IP/Hostname or port is incorrect
  2. The IP/Hostname or port (i.e service) is down
  3. The IP/Hostname is taking longer than your default timeout to respond
  4. You have a firewall that is blocking requests or responses on whatever port you are using
  5. You have a firewall that is blocking requests to that particular host
  6. Your internet access is down
  7. Your live-server is down i.e in case of "rest-API call".

Also, if you're trying to connect insecurely to an endpoint, set the scheme to "http":

serviceArgs.setScheme("http");
