How to configure Net4Log in .Net to send logs to the Splunk HTTP Event Collector?

We are trying to configure our app to send log messages to our server using the HEC service in our Splunk server. It is already configured and receiving messages, if we send messages from our Unix machine we can see them, we are using curl to do it:

curl -k "http://ourSplunSrv:8088/services/collector" -H "Authorization: Splunk xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx" -d '{"event": "TESTING", "sourcetype": "http:LAB-APP"}'

So, the server is running and listening fine.

But how to configure the Log4Net to do the same?

Can you please review Overview of Splunk logging for .NET and let us know what issues specifically you are running into, if any?

I see. If the Splunk-provided TraceListener does not work for you, maybe this third-party software gets you closer to what you need.

We want to use Log4net, which we are alredy using in our app.

Here's a nuget package. I haven't tried it yet though.
