I'm researching how to go about implementing an OPC server and have been working with the sample server implemented in .NET standard. I've created a simple installer for the server and installed it on my local machine. The server runs fine once installed, but is not able to be discovered by other OPC clients looking for registered OPC servers installed on the local machine. My question is how do I configure the sample server to allow it to be discovered by other fully qualified OPC clients?
You need to ensure the LDS is installed and running on your Server machine.
You need to ensure that your Server is configured to register with the LDS.
You need to ensure that the LDS is configured to accept registration requests from your Server (i.e. the Server is in the LDS trust list).
2.) That's the part I'm not sure how to do I suppose, I've already declared the url in the config.xml:
Please, correct me if this is wrong
3.) I'm looking for a way to automate this portion, because other free OPC servers I've found online I've used to test against, once installed, were visible in my OPC client. So, there must be some of doing this upon install of the server to the local machine.
Do I have to do additional configuration within the c# code? Do you know of official documentation that you could point me to that explains this process in detail? Thank you for your time, much appreciated. (note: I should say that I am not a corporate member, only a registered user, so I'm hoping I can still get access to the documentation outlining this process)
