Getting Data In

How do i setup splunk to monitor my wan and lan. (really new to this)

New Member

Well since all searches directed me to splunk i guess this program should be able to help me with my issue.

I would like to be able to monitor what goes trough my firewall, meaning i want to see all action the network behind the firewall are doing, and also i want be able to monitor clients that are entering our lan, and see what specific server / workstation they are connecting to.

We are using 2 netgear switches 24 ports, and netgear fsv 336g as FW.

Thx in advance and sorry for my incompetence.

here is another excellent place to start:

another good starting point from the perspective of learning how to use the Splunk Web UI is the Splunk Tutorial:

check those out, and i'm sure you'll have more specific questions :).
