DCOM Configuration Tutorial
OPC Server Computer Recommended Settings
DCOM Tutorial Home
This section is provides general for configuring DCOM to allow OPC interoperability.
The number of options to configure on the OPC Server are significantly more than the OPC client computer. This document is
probably the longest one in the tutorial on how to properly setup DCOM.
If you are not already familiar with the DCOM Config utility and how to launch it, please review the DCOM Config Utility Introduction.
There are 3 areas you will need to setup - please do them all before moving to the OPC client setup.
- Step 1: Default DCOM Configuration for the OPC server computer
- Step 2: OPC Server specific settings for your OPC server
- Step 3: Settings for OPCEnum, the tool that
lets remote clients browse for available OPC servers on the machine where your OPC servers are installed. If you will NOT be letting remote OPC
clients browse for available servers, then you can skip this step.
