No, it should just work. Can you share logs and configs (please format them using the
it shows the failed to conncet message !!
> Failed to connect to backoff(async(tcp://xx.xx.xxx.164:5044)): dial tcp xx.xx.xxx.x:5044: connect: connection refused
Note that i have configured filebeat.yml in the same way as the one working, and the proxy is configured in our private network
You normally get
connection refused if the port is not available on the target machine. Check if Logstash is running, bound to the correct device/ip (or not bound to any) and your is proxy correctly forwarding the port.
