you are rite , beats was sending the logs and logstash for some reason did not listen . but some how figured the problem now. there was a problem in the beats config yml also. under the path section there was only the directory path , i missed to put *.log.
after changing the configration and fxed the 5044 thing in logstash . now we are able to send logs. and logstash is listening. even we are able to see the logs in the kibana "discovery" . but now the problem is , little different . i might need another thread for that.
will tag you there if possible help. thanks a lot for responding..... really
