I hope everyone is doing great. I am very new to ELK stack and deploying it on two virtual machines. One is for Logstash and the other is for Kibana and Elastic search.
OS is Windows Server 2012 R2. I am setting up the ELK stack on my Windows boxes by following this guide: https://www.ulyaoth.net/resources/tutorial-install-logstash-and-kibana-on-a-windows-server.34/
The only difference is that author has deployed stack on one machine but I am setting up two. Now, when I run the Logstash, it doesn't bind the port that is mention in logstash.conf, i.e. 5544.
I am using nxlog for logs forwarding. The machine where nxlog is installed throwing an error, i.e. "couldn't connect to tcp socket on 18.104.22.168:5544; 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."
I ran portqry on my logstash server, it's not listening on port 5544.
What could be the problem or how to bind port to logstash?
