Hi

In one instance you could use only one port which can listen http or https but not both. If you are needing several ports you must install several HEC instances.

Hello Ismo, one question: am i correct that i can install several add-ons on the same Splunk server?

As long as those don't use HEC on the same server. I think that even that is manageable, but you will get less headache if you add those to separate HF.
