Connection to Matrikon OPC Simulation Server via Utgard


I am using the Matrikon OPC Server for Simulation and Testing, instead of TOPServer, along with the tutorial HowToStartWithUtgard. I am not able to connect to the server. This is the error that I get:

I do not know where I should register the Class and what Class it refers to.

It is referring to the clsid you're attempting to use -- it is not in the registry. Can you double check that you're using the correct one for Matrikon OPC Simulation Server?

Working demo, tested on Windows 10 and Java 8.

User must have administrator rights on Windows.

Errors that might occur:

00000005: Login error (does the user has administrator rights !?)
8001FFFF: Firewall, RPC dynamic ports are not open (see below)
80040154: Double check CLSID in registry, below HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT

Firewall rules

netsh advfirewall firewall add rule^

rem the next one does not seems needed
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="DCOM" dir=in action=allow protocol=TCP localport=135
