Normally at the end there is a meesage saying that the web interface is available at 127.0.0.0:8000

I just desapeared because I was able to earlier. I dont know if a misconfigured something

Hi @fromero ,

if you run "your_ip_address:8000" can you access the web GUI of your Splunk server?

If not there could be two issues:

  • as @isoutamo said, the web interfaces could be disabled, if this is your firt installation it's very rare,
  • you didn't disable the local firewall  (iptables).

In the second case disable iptables and try again.

Ciao.

Based on screen shot the web server is disabled, so there shouldn’t be anything listening on port 8000. Unless it’s not disabled then you should found reason why it’s not try to start it from splunkd.log.

Hi

you should check if you have disabled web server. See https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Security/DisableunnecessarySplunkcomponents
