The Example application installed with OPC Systems.NET is a Smart Client compatible application demonstrating remote connectivity to any OPC Systems.NET Service. The application includes OPC Controls.NET, OPC Trend.NET, OPC Alarm.NET, and the OPC Systems configuration component.
When building your own Smart Client application make sure to include either the Network Node name or IP Address of the OPC Systems Services you wish to connect to. This would include the OPC Controls Tag properties, the OPC Trend pen Tag names, the OPC Alarm window network nodes, and any routines using the OPC Systems programmatic interface.
OPC Systems.NET uses TCP port number 58724, so be sure to add your applications you deploy to any firewalls on your system with this TCP port number as an exception. The TCP port number is adjustable in both the service and as the WCFPortNumber property in each .NET dll.
