Splunk Search

Connecting "remotely" instead of using localhost

Path Finder

I want to test an HEC script that is hosted remotely by pointing it to the Splunk instance at my desk.

Up to this point the script was also on my machine, so I would point the HEC to localhost:8088 and that would be that.  

Now that the script lives remotely, how do I tell Splunk to send it back to my machine?  I tried substituting my IP address for localhost, but I got a connection refused error in Python.

Am I skipping some steps?

Make sure the firewall on your machine accepts connections to port 8088.
