Hi

Im trying to use logincreator.pl to create an account in my hosts.

it returns an error saying
"Insufficient permissions ...."

please help on this.
Thanks in advance.

one more question,
does these scripts run under any ports? cuz the hosts are secured by firewall.

Usually this is a sign that you are running the scripts with a username that does not have the proper rights on the target host. There also may be a chance you don't have a connection to the required ports on the hosts if they are indeed behind a firewall. Make sure you can access the MOB for the target host from the subnet of the splunk forwarder you are running the scripts from.

The scripts communicate to the MOB through a soap transaction. The default ports you need open are 80 and 443.
