I am trying to configure McAfee ePO to send syslogs to Splunk; ePO requires the use of SSL. I've tried to configure an SSL input on port 6514 for TCP - syslog, and followed all the steps found in the web / manuals / etc. but I can't seem to be able to get this to work.
Here's my question: Where can I find logs that show the detail of the SSL negotiation with the remote host, and what is failing?
Sending syslog directly to Splunk is against best practice. You should send it to a syslog server like Rsyslog or Syslog-ng. Regardless, you would have to install certificates on the receiving host, otherwise handshake will fail.
