How to Connect TW to KepWare

Re: How to Connect TW to KepWare

Hi Steven,

Thanks for your point, I'm quite new here, how could I "launch a web browser local to KEPServerEX and form the connection to ThingWorx Composer"


Thanks.


Marc

Re: How to Connect TW to KepWare

Hi Marc,

That's no problem. Since you tested your connection with a ping, and since you are not using the 'localhost' host name, I assume you have KEPServerEX and ThingWorx installed on different PCs. Is this true?

If so, launch a web browser on the KEPServerEX PC and enter the ThingWorx Composer URL from your previous screenshot. Does this connection succeed?

Re: How to Connect TW to KepWare

At the begining, was on two different PC, but was not working, so I installed everything on the same PC.

I shall use the local host name thus?

Re: How to Connect TW to KepWare

Hi Marc,

Yes, you can try localhost. We mainly need to figure out how to satisfy the ThingWorx platform (and ultimately Winsock) to allow the socket connection.

If localhost does not work, open Controls Advisor, select "TESTV2", then select the Key icon just above that. This should give you the connection info you need to enter into the KEPServerEX Project Properties (within the ThingWorx menu).

Any better?

Re: How to Connect TW to KepWare

Morning Steven,

I verified that all connection info are correct and aligned with the one in KEPServerEX.

I try to check the settings of KEPServer try the url in view in browser below and it is not working either, told me that the connection is not possible.

Would it have a link with my issue?

Thanks for your support.

Marc.

Re: How to Connect TW to KepWare

Hi  Marc,

That menu you are in is for the Config API service. The host and port are different from what you have been testing, but it may be a firewall blocking connections in both instances.

Are ThingWorx and KEPServerEX on different PCs? If they are, we will still want to try the test mentioned before. Open a web browser on the KEPServerEX PC and try connecting with either of these URLs:

lcipmpa17792.ad.compa.corp:9080/Thingworx/Composer

-or-

lcipmpa17792.ad.compa.corp:9080/Thingworx/FormLogin/Welcome

What are the results of those tests?

If neither URL succeds, can you try testing the socket connection, using Telnet? Here is a link to instructions on this:
