I have previously installed Splunk Free and is able to access the Web Interface through my local hostname as so.
"MyPcName:8001" in Google Chrome.
However, it stopped working out of the blue one day as Chrome returns "ERR_CONNECTION_RESET" whenever i tried to connect via the local hostname. I've managed to connect to Splunk by using the localhost IP "127.0.0.1".
Have anyone encountered a problem similar to this before? If so, how did you manage to troubleshoot it?
Thanks in advance!
I'm able to ping localhost and nslookup 127.0.0.1 returns me :
Given that, "C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin> splunk start" returns me -
"The Splunk web interface is at http://MyPcName:8001". But that link always returns me ERR_CONNECTION_RESET. So far, the only link that works for me is:
Could you please check serverName config in server.conf file under $SH/etc/system/local
and if not updated with your PC name and change it and restart Splunk and try connecting with http://MyPcName:8001
