I installed a heavy-forwarder, and will be monitoring some logfiles. I configured the inputs/outputs/props conf file and I restarted the forwarder, and it keeps telling me that "A splunktcp forwarder port is not configured in inputs.conf". I'm not looking to monitor any ports - why is it telling me that?
splunktcp is used by your receivers (indexers) that your forwarder is sending data to.
In your forwarder's outputs.conf , is the receiver host that you have specified correctly setup and listening on the splunktcp port ?
