Why am I not able to get Aruba wireless controllers logs into Splunk via UDP port 514?

Hello guys,

I am trying to forward the logs of Aruba wireless controllers into Splunk, but I am not able see the logs in Splunk. I am forwarding the logs to the Splunk server via UDP/514 port. Is there anything else that needs to be configured in the Splunk server like input files etc?

Are you listening on udp/514? Check Settings > Data Inputs > UDP for a port 514. If it is not there, add it, and then check the results.
