Can I use the HTTP Event Collector with Splunk Free?

Explorer

I'm trying to use the HTTP Event Collector with my home instance of Splunk, but I keep getting a 404 not found error - This isn't because I'm using a Splunk Free license, is it? I don't see the HEC listed on the Splunk Free vs. Enterprise comparison table, but I'm struggling to find any other possible reason this wouldn't be working. The token is enabled, and Splunk is listening on port 8088.

HEC works fine / is fully supported with our free license.

What URL are you using for the collector? I am using http://localhost:8088/services/collector

Thank you for just making me double check that. I was using that URL, and then changed it at some point in my debugging, and I must have fixed the problem (I think it was https-related), but I was still testing using the wrong URL. Sorry about that.
