How to setup a connection between VMs and ELK?

This is a beginner question but how would you get virtual machines to
connect to ELK so you can see the logs of those VMs on Kibana? Is there a
place to input the IP of the VMs so it is displayed in Kibana?

You need to ship the logs from the VMs to ES.

Hey thanks for the reply! I tried looking up how to do that but am still
lost... Would you happen to know what commands you would use to ship the
VM's logs to elasticsearch?

There is no single command, it's a concept.

You can use rsyslog, logstash, logstash-forwarder, logstash-courier or many
other pieces of software to do this.

Would you happen to know what the process is or know of any links that go
over the concept that allow you to do this? For example, is there a certain
file to edit once you download logstash-forwarder?
Thanks again
