how to ping machine from Thingworx app

Hi,

Is there any way, we can ping any machine from Thingworx and confirm that particular machine is running or not.

i have a requirement where I need to ping particular ip and show real time status that whether machine is online or not.

Thanks,

Jigar

Re: how to ping machine from Thingworx app

depends if you have access to the network of your target machine,

"ping" in the context of a remote machine (especially in a foreign network) is normally blocked, typcially all inbound traffic is blocked.

The Thingworx Edge SW (EMS as well as SDKs) provides a firewall-friendly way to implement an outbound communication (from machine to Thingworx server) that includes connectivity status. You noremally leverage this information to detect if machine is running and optionally implement additional monitoring states.
