Getting Data From TCP Port - I need to provide a Token in Order to Make The Connection

New Member

I have a requirement where in order for the remote machine to send data over the TCP connection to Splunk, it needs Splunk to send it a token.

Example:

Splunk makes connection over TCP to an IP:Port
Remote machine sends back a prompt -> Enter Token:
Splunk responds with a "token".

Is it possible to setup a data source with this type of configuration?

You can setup a scripted input, which essentially makes it possible to get data into Splunk in any way you want.
