Issue/Introduction

Problems sending SIEM traffic to Arcsight Splunk or other syslog server.

Resolution

If the SIEM Agent should write to a remote computer, use the “-t” switch to specify the target using the format host:port.
Example -t  10.10.0.10:3128

If the SIEM Agent should write to a local computer, do not use the “-t” switch.
A network socket is expected. 
Do not use example: -t 127.0.0.1:3128
