Connect Thingworx on cloud with Kepware on private network

Hello,

I'm working on a proof of concept to establish connect remote plc with thingworx that is installed on cloud. To give an overview of current setup we have

 

PLC and Kepware installed on prem ( in private network ), and 

Kepware, and Thingworx installed on a EC2 in AWS in public network.

 

What is best way to connect both of them? I wish to send data from Kepware ( on prem ) to Thingworx (on cloud) but currently it doesn't work as both are in different networks.

Yes, the guide works when Kepware is run on a computer on a private network network behind a firewall. The computer running Kepware must be able to connect to both the PLC and the server where ThingWorx is running.

Hi Rick,

Thanks for sharing tutorial. This is definitely helpful. While this guide cover plc thingworx integration, I still have problem when both are in separate network, I looking for way to tunnel out of private network. Can it be done using kepware?
