4.3.3 Simple Discovery with a DiscoveryUrl ToC Previous Next

Every Server has one or more DiscoveryUrls that allow access to its Endpoints. Once a Client obtains (e.g. via manual entry into a form) the DiscoveryUrl for the Server, it reads the EndpointDescriptions using the GetEndpoints Service defined in OPC 10000-4.
