Getting Data In

Pull syslog data from EC2 instance into Splunk

We're running an on-prem instance of Splunk Enterprise behind a firewall which (currently) does not permit ingress on ports 9996 or 9997. As such, I can't get EC2 syslog data in using the UF. Is it possible to get our on-prem instance of Splunk to pull the syslog data, in something close to real-time, from the EC2 instance. Is there a better way to architect this or should I just resign myself to do battle with our network administrators?

Thanks,
Mike

If they will only let you communicate TO AWS, then run an indexer in AWS, and peer your on prem search head with the AWS indexer.
