Developing for Splunk Enterprise

How to connect C# SDK sample to Splunk Enterprise created from Azure?


I have created Splunk Enterprise Server from Azure market place.
I am now trying to connect to this server from C# sdk using the server name and port(8089). But I get an error

An error occurred while sending the

I have disabled Server certificate validation on the C# sample.

    ServicePointManager.SecurityProtocol = SecurityProtocolType.Ssl3;
    ServicePointManager.ServerCertificateValidationCallback += (sender, certificate, chain, sslPolicyErrors) => true;

Also, as per the tutorial when I try to navigate to scheme://host:port for the azure server, I get ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT

Is there any other settings that I have to configure on Server?

Splunk in Azure Marketplace deploys Splunk instance(s) within a newly created virtual network (vnet). By default, Splunk management port 8089 is open only to the private virtual network for security reasons. You could manually change that to allow traffic from a particular CIDR range or the public internet. From the Azure portal, browse to the network security group which was created by the template for the server(s) in question, and update the inbound security rule named "Allow-Mgmt-From-VNET". Alternatively, you could of course run the C# client from within the vnet.
Hope this helps.

Assuming all parameters are correct, a timeout usually means blocking firewalls.

Can you telnet to the management port?
