Getting Data In

Universal Forwarder forwarding to Universal Forwarder

Is it possible to configure multiple Universal Forwarders to forward their data to another Universal Forwarder that would forward to an indexer? The logic here is to configure many servers in our DMZ with a Universal Forwarder which in turn would forward to a single Universal Forwarder that would then forward the data through the firewall to our indexer requiring only one firewall rule source to destination. If anyone has another suggestion for doing this, it would also be appreciated.
Thanks,
-Bob

You can set up the consolidating forwarder as a heavy forwarder. That is kind of what a heavy forwarder is for.
