Forward specific Events to Nessus Security Center

Hello

We want to forward (and index in Splunk) some Events (Windows Event Logs) to Nessus Security Center Log Correlation Engine.

I've tried the following settings on the Indexer:

"D:\splunk\etc\system\local\props.conf"

[WinEventLog://Application]
TRANSFORMS-routing1=nessus

[WinEventLog://Security]
TRANSFORMS-routing2=nessus

[WinEventLog://System]
TRANSFORMS-routing3=nessus

"D:\splunk\etc\system\local\transforms.conf"

[nessus]
REGEX = .
DEST_KEY=_TCP_ROUTING
FORMAT=nessusforwarder

"D:\splunk\etc\system\local\outputs.conf"

[tcpout] 
defaultGroup = nothing
disabled = 0 

[tcpout:nessusforwarder] 
disabled = 0 
server = xx.xx.xx.xx:9445
sendCookedData = false
indexAndForward = true

Does't work like this, any hints what's wrong in my config?

as you have discovered, this only works on forwarders. Not indexers.

http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.2/Forwarding/Forwarddatatothird-partysystemsd

indexAndForward is a bit misleading. It only works on heavy forwarders and peers in a cluster can't also be heavy forwarders.
