ThingWorx WebSocket-based Edge MicroServer (WS EMS) and Lua Script Resource (LSR) > Verifying Your Connection
  
Verifying Your Connection
Following the initial message that indicates a successful connection to the ThingWorx platform instance, you can verify your connection as follows:
1. Open a web browser on the system or device that is hosting the WS EMS, and enter the following URL in the address bar:
http://localhost:8000/Thingworx/Things/LocalEms/Properties/isConnected
This request returns an InfoTable that contains a single row that indicates whether the WS EMS is online or offline.
2. If the result of this request is true, the WS EMS is online. To test that you can access data on the ThingWorx platform instance, enter the following URL in the address bar:
http://localhost:8000/Thingworx/Things/SystemRepository/Properties/name
This request returns an InfoTable that is serialized to JSON, where the row of the InfoTable contains the name of the requested thing, “SystemRepository”.
3. If both of these tests succeed, the WS EMS is successfully connected to the ThingWorx platform instance.
