inputs.conf and outputs.conf for SSL encryption

Path Finder

Hi,
Can someone share with me the recent inputs & outputs conf file for SSL encryption? I am having some trouble for securing the connection between forwarder and indexer.

Hi chintan_shah,
this is an example that I used:
outputs.conf on Forwarders

[tcpout]
defaultGroup = default-autolb-group

[tcpout-server://xx.xxx.xxx.xxx:9997]
[tcpout-server://yy.yyy.yyy.yyy:9997]

[tcpout:default-autolb-group]
server = xx.xxx.xxx.xxx:9997, yy.yyy.yyy.yyy:9997
disabled=false
sslCertPath = $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/auth/server.pem
sslPassword = password
sslRootCAPath = $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/auth/cacert.pem
sslVerifyServerCert = false
useACK=true
disabled = false

inputs.conf on Indexers

[SSL]
serverCert = $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/auth/server.pem
password = password
requireClientCert = false

This is a default configuration that you can modify following https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.0.0/Security/AboutsecuringyourSplunkconfigurationwith... .
Obvioulsy change password!

Bye.
Giuseppe
