I'm absolutely new to the whole Stack, so please be patient with my lack of knowledge.
Trying to install Elasticsearch, Kibana, Logstash and Winlogbeat to get a whiff of how to handle it all, I run into some early problems.
When trying to install the x-pack plugin to Kibana, it fails due to "No valid URL specified".
The url that is autmatically attempted to use is https://artifacts/elastic.co/downloads/kibana-plugins/x-pack/x-pack-5.0.0.zip which should work.
Sadly, this stops me cold in the tracks, as I can't authenticate at Kibana without x-pack.
EDIT: seems I got a similar problem with the elasticsearch-plugin as well: Connection refused.
