Help is appreciated so I can start getting my data into Splunk.

Hey Andy,

What are you trying to do? Receiving is already setup to listen to port 9997.

I believe that functionality was taken out of the GUI to prevent customers from messing themselves up.

What you should do is go to your Apps--> Universal Forwarder app and follow the instructions there. But basically you download a UF, then you download the credentials and install the .spl file as an app on your forwarder. That Credentials have all the information needed to get your data into the Splunk ES Sandbox. (i.e. outputs.conf and the SSL certs and Passwords)

Hope this helps,
