Why am I unable to run a fresh Install of Splunk 6.3 on a VM running Windows Server 2012

Communicator

Hi.

I just installed Splunk Enterprise 6.3 on a VM running Windows Server 2012. The install went fine, but when I try to run Splunk, it waits indefinitely to connect. Splunkd is running, the VM is listening on port 8000, and it's on a private network with no firewall.

Is this a common pitfall, and is there anything I can do to connect?

Thanks

I discovered, by blind luck, that I am able to connect if I use port 8001 instead of default port 8000.

Can you telnet to the VM on TCP/8000 from the VM itself, and from a machine on the same subnet?
