My conf.file is:


input {
     beats {
         port => 5044
     }
  }



  

output{
lasticsearch {
hosts => ["http://172:21:14:104:9200"]
index => "%{[@metadata][beat]}-%{[@metadata][version]}-%{+YYYY.MM.dd}"
}
}

i dont know what to do, thank you for any help!

The first three of these : should be .

Badger thank you for your response i am trying to fix it almost 10 days you mean that output should be up ? and input down in configuration file ?

I am saying you should change "http://172:21:14:104:9200" to "http://172.21.14.104:9200"

i changed it but without any success, also when i check the port 5044 it is not active

netstat -tulpn (there is not presented port 5044)

http://172.21.14.104:5601/app/home#/ (this one works well)
http://172.21.14.104:9200 (also works great)

i see same errors again

You have a typo in your configuration. That should be 'elasticsearch'.

it the input configuration file there was an error in lasticsearch it should be elasticsearch i fixed it

but now i get an error:
Invalid version of beats protocol: 64

and on windows machine:

wwsarecv: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.

Thank you so much!!!

See this post.

Thank you very very much for your help!

i have an question why does when i run:
netstat -tulpn i see output

tcp6 :::5044 listen (actually it is ipv6) ?

See this post.
