Splunk connection refused

Path Finder

This seemingly looks like a simple problem but yet to come out of it.
I have a program which used to just work fine (uses splunk java sdk). Suddenly, it stopped working and giving me - java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused: connect.
I have checked ports are open. This is localhost only.
Pl guide what else could be looked for.

Based on the error, it is not your credentials that are causing this issue. I know that if your server isn't running, you definitely get the same error when trying to connect.

If your server is indeed running, then the next logical step would be to try and connect to the server from the command line using curl (of course change the host, credentials etc.):

curl -k https://localhost:8089/services/auth/login -d username=admin -d password=changeme

I got this error when I forgot the port number. Couldn't figure out why I was able to access from one PC but not another one sat side-by-side. Luckily it didn't take me more than 5 minutes to realise my mistake, but saw this window (the post of this question) still open, and thought I would suggest the more likely cause (user error).
