Regarding OPC DA Connectivity from Ubuntu

06 Jun 2021 17:43 #9737 by support
The answer is negative.

Only OPC UA and OPC XML-DA (i.e. not the "Classic", COM/DCOM-based OPC) are possible on Linux (Ubuntu).

"Classic" OPC DA would be possible in theory, because Microsoft was legally forced to make the underlying protocols for RPC and DCOM public. But in reality, no good implementation of these protocols exists on Linux.
