Deployment App shows in Client's Apps directory:

Index and sourcetype are correct. 

These are the only lines the the Clients splunkd that indicate any sort of problem:

Any ideas?

Succeeded in getting data by using the the following command on the client:

./splunk add monitor /var/log

however it still will not work by using a deployed app from the deployment server.
