I just installed Splunk Enterprise 6.0 and all went swimmingly. However, my connection is refused when trying to go to it in my browser. What am I missing?

Taking the fact that it worked fine with firewall disabled, I think you just need to open the right port for this. In this case, 8000.
Here is a good port digram
Check that you've got the protocol, host name, port correct in the browser. If wrong, correct and try again.
Check that you can establish a connection, e.g. telnet to the host and port. If not, talk to network administration to fix.
That being said, go grab 6.3 - it's significantly improved over 6.0.
I stopped the firewall and it worked fine - so something in my firewall settings is doing this.
I am trying to help a customer using our app and they aren't willing to upgrade to 6.3 yet for some reason - so I'm trying ti troubleshoot the older version with them. I'm just running 6.0 in a VM for these purposes.
