How do I access my local Splunk enterprise from outside our local network (Global Access)?

I have installed Splunk enterprise in my local system and It can be accessed within a local network using my system's IP or hostname.

Now, I want to make it global and wish ** to access from outside of the network.**

That’s my question. Can you please help me with this and provide a path forward or do I need to install Splunk cloud instead of Splunk Enterprise?

Hi @dhirendra761,

To access your Splunk Enterpsie instance which is hosted on on-premise network from Internet, you must have static public IP address assigned to your splunk server or firewall (If firewall then you can NAT public ip address to private IP address) OR you can use Splunk Cloud which is cloud based full Splunk instance but it is free for 14 days (As far as I remember) and after that if you want to continue to use that then you need to purchase subscription.
