Re: Not able to find correct thingworx server URL

Hi @ankit12.

 

The simple answer if you are trying to connect to the url from within your network is to replace localhost with the host name or IP address of the server hosting ThingWorx.  For example:

 

http://servername:8080/Thingworx

http://192.168.168.35:8080/Thingworx

 

However, it may be necessary to check the server firewall to ensure access is being allowed to port 8080 from outside of the host server.

 

If your intention is to set this up for public access, there are a number of considerations.  Your company's network engineering or IT teams would need to be engaged for ensuring all security requirements are being adhered to.

 

Please let me know if you have further questions.

 

Regards.
