Using filebeat to pass log files to logstash error

Hi I have setup both logstash and filebeat such that filebeat will send logs to localhost:5043 while logstash will listen for input on port 5043. However I keep getting the error
" ERR Connecting error publishing events ( retrying): dial tcp connectex: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it." What is the error that is causing this?

Are you using specifically? Do you have any sort of local proxy or firewall enabled?

I configured filebeat to output to localhost:5043 and my lostash.json has been configured to listen for input from beats on port 5043. I tried disabling my firewall but it still give me the same result.
