Ship filbeat data to public ip server(logstash)


(Jonar B) #1

I have 2 machine (1 remote and 1 server)
My server is on public IP which holds the logstash and elasticsearch.
It is possible to send data(filebeat) to the public ip server(logstash/elasticsearch)
Can you share a config example?
What are the security measures if this is possible?

Thank you!

Yes, of course.

Apart from VPN you should be able to use SSL certificate verification (i.e. Logstash's beats input checks that the certificate sent by Filebeat is okay).
