Getting Data In

How to configure a universal forwarder on Windows to send data to another Windows system?

Path Finder

I already installed the universal forwarder on a Windows system. What I would like to do is get the data into another Windows system from the forwarder, but I can't figure this out, so please help me.
I have set the forwarder and receiver to listen on port 9997.

I configured like this on my receiver machine:

inputs.conf file

host = TRAINING12




targetUri= deploymentserver.splunk.satishnagalla:9997


restartSplunkWeb = 0
restartSplunkd = 0
stateOnClient = enabled

whitelist.0 = *


I configured like this in my forwarder machine:

output.conf file:


disabled = false


inputs.conf file:

host = satishnagalla

disabled = 0
