If you did all the above configuration steps, you have to check, if you're receiving logs.
At first check if you're receiving the Splunk internal logs:
If yes, the problem is that you have to configure inputs (https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.1.3/Data/Usingapps) or there's a problem on them.
If not, check again the connection.
