Having issue to setup filebeat

Hello I am having issue while setup the filebeat module for threat hunting.

This is the error I am getting..

root@wazuh:/etc/kibana# sudo filebeat setup
Overwriting ILM policy is disabled. Set setup.ilm.overwrite: true for enabling.

Index setup finished.
Loading dashboards (Kibana must be running and reachable)
Exiting: error connecting to Kibana: fail to get the Kibana version: HTTP GET request to fails: fail to execute the HTTP GET request: Get "": dial tcp connect: connection refused (status=0). Response:

The configuration of the filebeat.yml file looks like this.

=================================== Kibana ===================================

host: ""

---------------------------- Elasticsearch Output ----------------------------


Array of hosts to connect to.

hosts: [""]
ssl.certificate_authorities: ["/etc/elasticsearch/certs/elasticsearch.crt"]
ssl.certificate: "/etc/elasticsearch/certs/elasticsearch.crt"
ssl.key: "/etc/elasticsearch/certs/elasticsearch.key"

Protocol - either http (default) or https.

protocol: "https"

Authentication credentials - either API key or username/password.

api_key: "changed:changed changed"

username: "elastic"

#password: "changed"

  • ALso have total different question.

I have network traffic coming into elastiflow from multiple FWs and Can I apply threat intelligence/filebeat on to that network traffic. So that I do not have to setup filebeat onto multiple hosts.

Or might be my concept to filebeat is wrong. But please guide me what to do and how to do.
