Wait a few minutes before you try to reconnect. Depending on your settings, it might be necessary to renew the address of your computer to reach the device again.
Using Web Interface

This requires the edge to be internet connected which you can do by configuring the WIFI as described in the getting started doc.

Then navigate to 
Bluecats -> Connect and Manage. If the Device Register Status is Registered then the edge device is successfully connected with the Bluecats cloud services. If the status is 'Invalid' or you need to re-register the device, refer registering the device.
