one of my team has installed the forwarder on a Windows client. running tcpdump on the backend of splunk enterprise shows:
08:32:06.990056 IP xxx.56097 > splunk.xxx.9997: Flags [P.], seq 777:895, ack 1, win 512, length 118
08:32:06.990080 IP splunk.xxx.9997 >xxx.56097: Flags [.], ack 895, win 2512, length 0
my receiver is enabled on port 9997 but Splunk is not indexing the data. I have other clients using the same setup and they are being indexed.
The forwarder was not setup using the Domain Admin and using the Domain\Username style. Thank!

Verify the forwarder has inputs enabled and that those inputs reference indexes that exist.
Could it be something in the setup during the installation of the Forwarder?
