Add connection test in DSX

When adding a connection there should be an option to test the connection.   I was teaching a lab today and nearly half the students got the port or host name wrong.   They didn't know until they tried to use the connection in their notebook.   Universally the question was "why can't I test whether this connection works when I define it?"
