i setup syslog server A, with filebeats and then ELK server B.
stuff gets sent from A to B, and for one moment yesterday appeared to make its way to kibana. I then had lunch and it never worked again!
tcpdump shows all comms from A being reset.
ports and configs look correct (I also built another test setup some time ago and this worked)
do i need to install the beats plugin? if so how can i? keep getting
