Just out of interest can anybody explain what application layer protocols are used between an OPC client and an OPC DA server? I understand many OPC servers come with a HTTP server for web browser applications however I'm thinking more about Windows based OPC client software such as HMI and SCADA programs.
Also, are standard OPC DA servers built with TCP/IP based networking functionality or is there a specific type of OPC server required for networking?
