It's not related to your problem, but for static strings that will never be written, you should drop the arbitrary length inside the  because it's just wasting space.
And if these are declared at function scope but are never changed, also mark them static to save space and code.

Force the logging level to, eg, 65535

So starting the connection was okay?

I would confirm the test apps work on your Arm toolchain / board before doing anything else. These are the golden sanity check for lws.
If they work everything else should work.
Notice the connection request just starts the ball rolling, the actual connection happens asynchronously during subsequent service depending on network latencies etc.
