hi thiru53
To change your splunk URL http://localhost:8000 find the default host name of your machine and replace http://localhost:8000 by


For example if your default host name is momo-PC
use http://momo-PC:8000 like URL

You can edit the default port in the web.conf file in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local.

This is documented quite well in the admin guide, as well as reference documentation.

Additionally, you can use the splunk command:

./splunk set web-port 80 -auth admin:changeme

To change your DNS, you will need to consult your own network infrastructure.

I down voted this post because the web.conf file is not in system/local anymore
