In my continuing quest to get ELK 5.x set up, I've managed to get logstash, filebeat, and topbeat logging working. However, despite hours and hours spent researching the issue, then trying every tweak under the sun, I can't get winlogbeat to work. I'm trying to use logstash output. At the sending host, this is what I see in the winlogbeat log:
2017-06-14T11:20:47-04:00 ERR Connecting error publishing events (retrying): dial tcp 10.0.10.101:5044: connectex: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.
This is from winlogbeat.yml, with the understanding that it started simple, and I've added a bunch of stuff to try to get it working:
The Logstash hosts
ssl.certificate_authorities: ["C:/Program Files/winlogbeat/ELK.crt"]
Running "curl http://10.0.101.101:9200/_cat/indices" shows no winlogeat indices.
From that box, I can ping the ELK server, telnet to port 5044. There's no firewall blocking connectivity. Can anyone help. I'll post whatever else you might require to help me.
