Currently i am using filebeat agent to forward the logs from file to logstash server. But i want to know how file input plugin work in logstash? I am confused how it will fetch the logs from remote server? If we need to make changes in remote server then what are those configuration changes? As per my knowledge we must to tell remote server where he will forward the logs like IP and Port.
Thanks in advance.

That's good. You should continue doing so.

The file input can only read files from file systems mounted on the same machine where Logstash runs.
Thank you for your quick response and to clearing my doubt.
