Latest ThingWorx Foundation Server and Academic Edge Connector
I posted some replies to an older thread but I wanted to start a new thread just to call attention to this problem.
I used the PTC University foundations course to complete Project 1 -- a simulated Mars Rover.
I used the export feature in the version deployed to:
and my rover thing, my simple mashup and even my app key were imported to the local copy of the Foundation server that I deployed to Windows Server 2012R2.
I had to create a new app key since the server is different -- at least I think that was necessary.
From the browser I can interact with the local mashup successfully.
When I try the academic edge connector (either the true Windows exe version or the Java version), I can not connect. I have the right port, using the correct thing name, and app key in the configuration panel but I see an error:
[CONFIG]: -> Error malformed URL, check "Server URL" and "Thing Name" Fields. Try adding http:// or https:// to the start of Server URL
I tried to use localhost as the name, as well as 127.0.0.1 and the IP address I see when I run ipconfig.
I even modified the tomcat config to allow external connections and created a hosts file entry on an external machine to have a name that looks like a real URL and ran the academic edge connector from that machine on my network and I get the same error. I am able to use a browser to connect to the Composer URL successfully from that machine.
When I use the Academic simulator I see the error in the attached image.
