DCOM configuration is a fact of working with OPC Technology whether you like it or not - most don’t. Even with the introduction of OPC Unified Architecture (UA), DCOM continues to be widely used. Sharing data between two or more computers using OPC means DCOM configuration is required, unless you look at Softing’s OPC Tunnel application. OPC Tunnel is an easy-to-use application that bypasses DCOM and moves OPC data over workgroups and domains. Unlike other tunneling applications, Softing’s OPC Tunnel incorporates security features which help integrators comply with company IT policies.
