Hi Guys, I have UF installed on my windows machine, abruptly last month logs got stopped. I check in splunkd log file and saw the error
TcpOutputFd [800 TcpOutEloop] - Connection to host=xx.xxx.xxx.xxx:9997 failed

Also after restarting, it resumes sending logs to Splunk for some days but again it will stop and gives the same error.

Not sure how to fix this issue and proceed.

Hi @thevikramyadav,

if your Splunk server continues to receive logs from other Universal Forwarders, the problem could be in the connection.

Check it using telnet:

telnet <ip_splunk_server> 9997

maybe something changed in the firewall rules.

Ciao.
