Hi,

I have struggled couple of days with the remote OPC connection for TxA panels. (I know that TxA panels need an anonymous connection, without user authentication). I found a OPC DA - DCOM setting guides from net, and I finally got the remote PC (Win 7) security settings correct (DCOM security, OPCEnum, OPC Server with Anonymous and Everyone "users"), OPCEnum etc. and managed to get connection with Prosys OPC Client.

Now my problem is that I cannot browse OPC server from iX Developer (2.0 SP1). Prosys OPC client and iX Developer are installed on the same computer. Prosys OPC client works just nicely. So it should be connect ok, but iX cannot browse the server??

Remote Server: \\xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
then I press OPC Server "Refresh" button.. browsing but OPC server not found!

"Localhost" OPC connection works nice and remote only with the Prosys OPC Client without any problem (reads OPC server list from OPCEnum correctly), but not from iX. I need this to work because we are using TxA series panel (WinCE).

Anyone got this to work?
I would need help with this asap

Thanks

 

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
