Remote Web Access does not stay on port 8000

New Member

I have installed a fresh Splunk server on a SLES 10 sp4 VM. Accessing the web interface in the local machine works fine. http://localhost:8000 translates to the login page. When I try to access the system from another machine by entering http://:8000 or http://:8000 it tries to load /en-US/ or /en-US/. I have tried to enter the full URL of the login but get the same result. The best I've been able to do is access http://:8000/en-US/account/logout that will load from the remote machine. As soon as I click it goes back to /en-US/.

Something seems to be redirecting the input to port 80 instead of 8000 once the connection to the Splunk server has been made.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Are you doing anything strange with iptables, or is there a load balancer or other filter in front of Splunk? By itself, Splunk will always respect the port in the URL that you specify.

No firewalls. Nothing between the machines except the linux is a VM on VMWare workstation and the other machine is a Windows XP workstation on the same LAN segment.

Do you get the same behavior with different Web Browsers ? IE, Chrome, Firefox etc..

there's an ip assignment app which you can't see outright. you can look for it under Edit. the app name is Virtual network editor, if you're using VMware workstation or server.

Good call on the different browser. For some reason my brain didn't go there. Chrome works just fine so it's something with my Firefox setup. Thanks!
