Good morning,

Noob to nxlog - installed in Windows and running on an OOB config, Host is set to localhost. All I get in the logs is:

2017-12-21 11:31:44 ERROR couldn't connect to tcp socket on Localhost:514; No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.
2017-12-21 11:32:16 INFO connecting to Localhost:514 2017-12-21 11:32:17 INFO reconnecting in 64 seconds 2017-12-21 11:32:17 ERROR couldn't connect to tcp socket on Localhost:514; No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.
2017-12-21 11:33:21 INFO connecting to Localhost:514 2017-12-21 11:33:22 INFO reconnecting in 128 seconds 2017-12-21 11:33:22 ERROR couldn't connect to tcp socket on Localhost:514; No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.

The firewall is disabled, 514 not showing as listening in netstat so not sure what I'm supposed to be looking at. Re-installed it, tried 1514 - no joy.

Can anyone assist?

Not sure why you want to connect to localhost as one would normally want to transfer logs to a remote machine.

Other than that this is really a networking issue and you should not expect anyone offering you a solution here, especially without showing a config file.
