Why am I unable to add a second input Parameter name and the UDP port 514 is not available?

New Member

hello,
I am trying to add to my Splunk some Linux via syslog, but when I try to add the input separately it sends me the next error:

Parameter name: UDP port 514 is not available.

If I try to disable and add a new input it lets me do it, but I receive logs of only one input.

What could be the problem?.

My Splunk is installed on a windows server.

Are you trying to create a 2nd input using the same port? Only one input can be configured for each port.

inputs.conf spec says explicitely that "Only one stanza per port number is currently supported." for UDP inputs.
