I configured a Splunk Universal Forwarder on Windows 10. I also installed Splunk light on another Windows 10 computer. The forwarder is not recognized by Splunk Light. Can you offer any suggestions?
You didn't mention if you've already tried looking at the documentation: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/SplunkLight/7.1.1/GettingStarted/GettingdataintoSplunkLightusin...
The link provided does not discuss firewall issues or other network related issues.
I solved this problem by modifying the Windows 10 Defender Firewall on both computers.

One option is to turn off the Windows 10 Defender Firewall on both computers.
This is one possible solution.
I would like an option besides turning off the entire firewall.
