Hi @AmyShah,

if you're not receiving data from a Forwarder you have at first to check if you did all the configuration steps:

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:

index=_internal host=<your_host>

If yes, the problem is that you have to configure inputs  ( or there's a problem on them.

If not, check again the connection.
