Can't connect to http://myserver:8000 on fresh install CentOS7

New Member

I've just installed latest splunk on a fresh minimal CentOS 7 installation.

Installation process showed no warnings or errors. Everything seems to be OK. I ran the init script command and i can see both ports (8000 & 8089) listening but I can't connect to splunk's web.

This is the output for "status".
