Remote OAS Service Access

Remote OAS Service Access

The OAS Service must be started to be accessed by a local or remote OPC client component or application.  Use the OAS Service Control application to Start the Service.

If you are using a Firewall make sure to open up TCP port 58724 for both inbound and outbound traffic.

You can check if the TCP port is open using the Windows Command Prompt with the following command on the same computer as the OAS Service.

You can adjust the TCP Port number used for the Service under Configure-Options-Networking.

If you change the default port number from 58724 make sure to also adjust each remote service accessing this service under Configure-Options-Remote Services and in each .NET application assembly using the WCFPortNumber property.
