HTTP Input data endpoint server cannot be started.

Hello,

On one of couple HFs, I received this error message "HTTP Input data endpoint server cannot be started." when creating a new HTTP Event Collector. Even thought, HTTP record created with a pre-assigned token value, but the token doesn't allow the connection where it's used (F5-VPN appliance in this case).

Anyone had resolved this issue?

Thanks,

Hi - Splunk TS found the issue where port 8088 is being used by the other process. So, don't put port entry 8088 in your inputs.conf file.
