Forwarder and indexer communication through port 8089 ?

Hi All,

Whether port 8089 should be opened bi-directional or uni-directional between forwarder and indexer ? In our setup, there is a firewall between forwarder and indexers, and I need to tell the firewall team about the same. I am asking them to open it bi-directional, but they are not allowing it. They need some Splunk documentation to support this as evidence.

Please clarify the direction and also point me some Splunk document, wherein I can show them as evidence, if bi-directional port opening is required.

Thanks
Pankaj

I have seen that thread before, but it is not clearly mentioned that whether 8089 should be uni-directional or bi-directional ? Can you tell me which direction is applicable 🙂 ?

Thanks
Pankaj

How about this forum question I asked a while ago? Would that count as evidence? 🙂
