Getting Data In

Can Kafka Connect consume data from a separate kerberized kafka and route to Splunk?

Explorer

My pipeline is: Kerberized Kafka --> Logstash (hosted on a different server) --> Splunk.

Can I replace the Logstash component with Kafka Connect ?

From the documentation, what I understood is that if Kafka Connect is hosted on the same cluster as that of Kafka, that's quite possible. But I don't have that option right now, as our Kafka cluster is multi-tenant and hence not approved for additional processes on the cluster.
