Permission denied logstash forwarder : trying to setup filebeat?

sudo scp /etc/pki/tls/certs/logstash-forwarder.crt root@
I was trying to setup filebeat on my elk stack but I am getting the the above error

scp: /etc/pki/tls/certs//logstash-forwarder.crt: Permission denied

also I would like to know Is it necessary to use filebeats or the basic ELK will do the work.

Sorry I am new to ELK if some of the above questions seem noobish.


You will need to check permissions on the dir you are sending to.

Depending on what you are looking to ship, you may or may not want to use beats. Also you may want Logstash in the pipeline for enrichment.
