Raw/Plaintext Kafka Input

Any advice?

Hej @matthkang

is zookeeper running on the Graylog server and listening on the loopback interface on port 2181?

did you double checked that?

Zookeeper is not running on the same server as greylog. Should it be? It is
listening on port 2181 though.


you had configured that zookeeper is running on the same host - you need to give the input the correct IP and port you have configured your zookeeper.
