I have installed graylog 2.4.0 from the ovf file on a vmware esxi 6.5.
I have innstalled the sidecar-collector on 2 windows computers, 1 win7 and 1 win10.
I have programmed the inputs and output to 127.0.0.1:5400 and the computers show up and with the correct id. So i have a connection to the API, but after banging my head against the keyboard after several hours of config tag errors in the logs on the computers, i scanned the server ip with nmap.
Port 5044 is closed. I then established a ssh connection to the server and performed netstat on port 80, 9000, 9200 and 5044. And all was open/listening exept 5044 for filebeats.
I thought the port would become active when i startet the input? Any ideas how i can get the port in a listening state?
