OPC UA Server on RealTime and DataSocket OPC Client on Windows


I have an existing realtime application (running on a sbRIO-9606) that creates an instance of an OPC Server using the 'NI OPC UA Server' VIs.  I can successfully interact with the server using the 'NI OPC UA Client' VIs as well as other 3rd-party OPC clients.


But I'm having difficulty connecting to the OPC server using DataSockets (on a Windows PC).  The error only states that it couldn't connect to the server or couldn't parse the URL.  If the servers provides an endpoint URL of 'opc.tcp://', what should I use for the DataSocket URL?  Is there anything else to be aware of?  Thanks.

Try using the LabVIEW's example "Monitoring OPC Item with Datasockets" and make sure the path is correct using the pop up window.
