Why am I unable to connect to a Splunk server from a different domain?

Trying to connect to a Splunk 6.5 server in domain D1 from domain D2.

Within domain D1,
works: http://hostnameXXX.org:8000

From domain D2,

  1. fails: http://hostnameXXX.org:8000
    ("The connection was reset. The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.")

  2. works: http://hostnameXXX.org:80
    (MS IIS home page)

  3. works: telnet hostnameXXX.org 8000
    (so port is open and visible)

What could be the problem?
Any other port that needs to be opened?

Disable the firewall running on the host and see if it works then.

Do you have a proxy server configured within your browser? A proxy might block the connection from your browser if it's not in some kind of bypass list...?

Perhaps test with firefox/chrome or change your browser settings to disable the proxy, this should force your browser to act the same as telnet (direct connection).

I configured Splunk to use port 8080, and the Splunk web-interface works fine now from the other domain.
Something about port 8000...
