Re: How to connect Kepware to thingworx

Greetings Gary,


To connect Kepware to ThingWorx Server you need to provide the following details in the Kepware Project Properties :

1. Host : It will be the hostname of your ThingWorx Server

2. Port : Port at which ThingWorx is running

3. Application Key : Search for Application Key in ThingWorx Composer for the thing specified in Project Properties


For example i am launching ThingWorx using this URL : http://localhost:8080/Thingworx .

So the host would be localhost and port will be 8080.


Once these properties are updated , the Kepware will again try the connection to ThingWorx Server using above properties .

Hey Gary,

Looks like you may have a small typo: academic.cloud.thingworx.comr​:443/Thingworx/WS

Should be .com not .comr

Let me know if this helps,

Thanks!

Hey Gary,

 

The host should be the address of your ThingWorx server and the thing Name is the name of the thing in ThingWorx that you will use to interface with your kepware server. This information and more can be found using this link:

Have fun!

I have changed that typo and I'm still having the error message. Is there anything else I can do?

Hey Gary,

Can you send me a screenshot of your server settings and the output that ThingWorx gives you to plug into it side by side?

Thanks,
