Meet Splunk Web and Splunk Manager

Launch Splunk Web
Use whatever host and port you chose during installation.
The first time you log in to Splunk with an Enterprise license, the default login details are:
Username - admin
Password - changeme
Note: Splunk with a free license does not have access controls, so you will not be prompted for login information.
Note: Starting in Splunk version 4.1.4, you cannot access Splunk Free from a remote browser until you have edited
$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/local/server.conf and set

requireSetPassword) for the admin user until you change the default password.
The first time you log into Splunk, you'll land in Splunk Home. There are two tabs at the top of the page: Welcome and Splunk Home. On the Welcome screen, there's an Add data button that takes you to a page with a list of data types that you can configure Splunk to index.
